"The mission of the new Munch Museum is to preserve valuable art exhibits safely and appropriately for perpetuity. Therefore, all such contracts are very important to us," says Eli Grimsby, director of the City of Oslo's culture and sports facilities. Desigo CC will control virtually every discipline in the building and provide a better overview and easier operation. The planning and design phase has already started, and the project is expected to be completed late 2019. The order is valued at more than 1.1 million euros.

"We are very proud to have won this contract. It shows that we have the expertise and solutions at the right price. The Munch Museum and Campus Ås at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), which we won before the summer holidays, are large and coveted contracts in a very competitive market," says Helge Rysjedal, sales manager at Siemens Norway.
