 Frequentis has been chosen to supply the communications equipment for the Area Control Centre (ACC) Oslo. The world-market leader for Voice Communication Systems in Air Traffic Control will supply four systems which are to go operational already in January 2009.

  
This most recent order by the Norwegian air navigation service provider AVINOR continues the Frequentis success story in Norway: In the past few years, Frequentis already equipped the ACC Bodø and the TWR/APP Trondheim with its proven VCS technology. By this project for the ACC Oslo, the Vienna headquartered communications specialist Frequentis further strengthens its position in the North of Europe.

The contract for ACC Oslo was signed on March 6. It includes four Frequentis VCS 3020X with a total of 115 working positions. Decisive for the success of the Austrian high tech company over its local competitors was, while remaining very cost-effective, the high quality, the state-of-the-art technology, and above all the short schedule of delivery. The Factory Acceptance Test is already planned for August, 2008, the go-live for January, 2009.

By making this major investment in safety and security, AVINOR underlines its mission to making it increasingly safer to fly. In addition, the new technology will accommodate further growth in the Oslo area. Thus the project ACC Oslo represents an important step for the future development of AVINOR.

But not only for AVINOR, also for Frequentis: The current contract includes an option for additional 10 systems to be delivered in the next four years to the ACC Stavanger, the TWR/APP Oslo and the TWR/APP Bergen. A framework contract, already ordered in 2006, sees also the delivery of towers for several airports in Norway.

However, it’s not only the sky where Frequentis is proud to contribute a little to the safety and security in Norway. Already back in 1998, Frequentis was awarded the contract for the Norwegian Coastal Radio (Kystradio, prime and operator Telenor Nett AS) for the supply of a countrywide coastal radio network in Norway. Currently, Frequentis is an essential partner in the Norwegian emergency network Nødnett where the company will supply 300+ control rooms to the Norwegian fire, health and police agencies.
