Fredrik Sjogren - CEO of Gothia Power
Gothia Power, a Swedish power system analysis company, has been acquired by DNV GL. “This company's expertise and services are a perfect match for DNV GL’s existing portfolio in the renewable power, transmission and distribution industries. I am therefore happy to announce this acquisition, which establishes DNV GL’s technical and strategic power system services in the Swedish and Baltic energy markets and further strengthens our leading position worldwide,” says DNV GL President and CEO Remi Eriksen.
Gothia Power’s 28 power system experts work out of offices in Gothenburg, Malmö, Västerås and Oskarshamn. The company offers advanced analysis and measurements for power production, power transmission and power consumption. “Sweden is one of the most interesting energy markets in Europe. It has a strong and innovative industrial base, especially within power and transmission. In addition, Sweden’s power system is tightly integrated with the rest of the Nordics and Baltics, both physically and through the Nord Pool power exchange. This is one of the reasons why DNV GL views Sweden as a strategic growth market,” Eriksen explains.
