The Øresundsbro Consortium has signed a consulting agreement with ÅF
relating to five of a total of six areas of technology. This means
that ÅF will be "principal supplier" for technical consulting
services for the Öresund Bridge between Malmö in Sweden and
Copenhagen in Denmark.

The contract will run for 2 years with effect from 1 May 2009, with
an option to extend.

Each year the Öresund Bridge utilises DKK 10 million (EUR 1.35
million) of its operating funds to purchase various types of
technical consulting services, including those now to be supplied by

The technical areas covered by the contract are Heating, Ventilation,
Air-conditioning & Sanitation, Electricity & Automation,
Construction, Road and Rail. The projects vary, with some focusing
exclusively on specific technology and others that require
collaboration among several different specialist fields.

ÅF was the only consulting company that submitted a tender for all
areas of technology. This is a clear indication of the breadth of
ÅF's expertise and of the company's ability to supply services that
cover virtually all areas of technology that are in demand from
industry and the public sector.

ÅF already has another contract with the Øresundsbro Consortium for
preventive and corrective maintenance for a number of the fixed
link's electronic systems and technical installations: these include
control and surveillance systems, networks, transmissions, telephony,
radio, video and traffic management.
