The Norwegian Directorate for Water and Energy (NVE) has several international development engagements aiming to contribute to the Norwegian government’s target for Norway being a key driver for a greener global development. The assignments are mainly focused on capacity- and institution building in selected partner countries, with particular emphasis on renewable energy and sustainable management of natural resources. As an advisor, Multiconsult will support NVE in their international assignments related to hydropower, transmission & distribution, water resource management and power market related disciplines.

We are also pleased that our expertise in international water and natural resource management is highly appreciated by the NVE, says Helge E. Jensen, Head of Renewable Energy in Multiconsult.

 

NVE currently has activities in Angola, Bhutan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Liberia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Tanzania, Ukraine, and Hungary. Most of the call-offs under the agreement, will have to be won in competition with the second and third ranked companies in the competition.
