Caverion, Pöyry, Kone and Kalmar have landed deals from Norway, China, Saudi Arabia and Curaçao.

First up, Caverion has won a contract to deliver building systems for two new environmentally friendly office buildings in Oslo, Norway. Commissioned by general contractor Veidekke, Caverion’s installations include heating and sanitation, cooling and sprinklers. The Finnish company’s work will commence in May 2019 and is slated for completion by autumn 2021.

Also in Norway, Biozin Holding has awarded Pöyry the owner’s engineering services assignment for the pre-engineering phase of its planned biozin production plant. The new plant will convert biomass to liquid biocrude, which will be sold and further processed into transportation fuels in oil refineries. The work is to be carried out between 2018 and 2020.

The Finnish company has also won an owner’s engineer services assignment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from the Saline Water Conversion Corporation. The assignment relates to the Shuqaiq Phase 3 Water Transmission System.

Elevator and escalator giant KONE is to equip line 3 of the Wuxi Metro in the southern part of China’s Jiangsu province. The deal follows the company’s earlier contribution to line 2 of the same metro.

Finally, Kalmar is to supply two Kalmar ship-to-shore cranes, including related spare parts, to Curaçao Port Services B.V. These will be used for modernising the customer’s container handling operations at the Willemstad Container Terminal on the island of Curaçao, located some 55 kilometres off the north-western coast of Venezuela.
