The network company Elvia enters into a supervisory agreement with Rejlers in Norway

The network company Elvia has entered into an agreement with Rejlers in Norway for electricity supervisory services on the west side of Oslo. The contract entered into force on 1 January 2021 and will run for three years, with the possibility of extension for a further three years.

As a Local Electrical Supervision Authority (DLE), Elvia is committed to ensuring the control of electrical installations in homes and businesses. Rejlers will be responsible for all supervisory tasks performed in Oslo West. The company is already collaborating with Elvia on supervision in Asker and Bærum. The tasks range from electrical inspections of residential properties to audits of businesses and electrical contractors, as well as information dissemination.

“We’re pleased that Elvia is showing us this trust. We carry out thousands of checks every year and are also very focussed on our duty to provide information. In cooperation with the fire service, we teach children in grades 6-9 about electrical safety,” says Asbjørn Hilde, Head of Rejlers Elsikkerhet.

The decision of who to inspect and when is based on various risk assessments, such as previous inspections, the age of the installation and the type of business. The supervision work helps to prevent accidents and fires with electrical causes. Around half of all building fires occur as a result of flaws in the electrical installation or the improper use of electrical equipment.
