Sustainability in Arendals Fossekompani

For more than 100 years, we have produced hydropower which has been used to build Norwegian industry and Norwegian communities. The know-how, capital and engineering skills related to the production of hydropower have laid the foundation for Arendals Fossekompani to successfully own energy and technology related companies that help build a greener tomorrow.

We continue to produce clean energy, but our contribution to the environment goes beyond the production of hydropower. Our companies help customers utilize their resources in a more sustainable way, and they provide technology, systems and solutions that make energy from renewable sources increasingly accessible and usable.
