On 12 February, an explosive fire broke out while work was underway on one of the large water slides at the water park at Liseberg in Gothenburg.

A construction manager died and large parts of the water park were destroyed.

It has been unclear how much it will cost to rebuild it, but on Wednesday Liseberg presented something they call “first cost estimate”.

In connection with the reporting for the first quarter, it emerges that Liseberg, which is owned by Gothenburg municipality, is writing down the value of the water park by SEK 484 million. That’s what Dagens Industri writes.

The sum corresponds to around NOK 488 million at today’s exchange rate.

Much unharmed

The damage is thus estimated at just under half of the budget for the entire plant, which was set at 1.2 billion Swedish kroner.

– The damage is in a way impossible to measure considering that we lost a friend and colleague in the fire. It is a loss we will never be able to replace, says Andreas Andersen, Liseberg’s managing director, in a comment.

– At the same time, we have to think ahead, and then the estimation of the material damage is a step on the way towards possible reconstruction.

He says large parts of the basement, the pool facility and technical installations are largely undamaged. A rebuild will probably include a new attraction tower, new roof construction and new attractions.

– In addition, a number of fire technical adjustments will probably be made, based on what the ongoing investigations result in, says Andersen according to Dagens Industri.

He also adds that no decision has been made to rebuild the water park. The decision is expected later this spring.
