The contract extends the partnership started in 2010. The value of the contract is about EUR 50 million.
“The safety of our travellers is Avinor's highest priority, which is why we depend on a solid partner with high security expertise. Short response time, nationwide presence and a high number of security experts were crucial to Caverion being awarded the contract,“ says Kirsti Grottheim, Section Manager at Avinor.
The agreement covers all of Avinor's 44 airports from Svalbard in the north to Kristiansand in the south, in addition to the technical center in Asker and the control center in Røyken.

We view the renewing of this contract as a great compliment for our highly skilled security professionals," says Knut Gaaserud, Executive Vice President, Caverion Norway.
