Foundation work for an Aluminium Smelter for Alcoa in Reyšarfjöršur Iceland(2004-2007) Sušurverk was responsible for all earthworks and also various other project parts. The Main Contractor for the erection of the smelter is the Canadian construction company Bechtel.


The work began in 2004 and was completed in 2007. The main items of the work were removal of overburden 1,600,000 m³ and blasting and excavation of 2,600,000 m³. Continuing the cooperation Bechtel chose Sušurverk to execute multiple smaller sub-contracts to satisfaction and ultimately the value of the project near 62 million $, more than double the original contract.
