TestimonialsAt Guard, we aim for total customer satisfaction and are committed to adding value for our customers wherever we are involved. And we like to be closely involved from the project planning stage all the way through to implementation, testing and commissioning. In all projects, our main focus is on conserving energy and making systems interact seamlessly, in order to provide our customers with great solutions that are right for them.
City of Oslo waterworksWe were delighted with the smooth progress of the project, which has delivered a system that's extremely user-friendly. Guard supplied a complete new distributed control system for the Skullerud water treatment plant, which supplies drinking water to over 100,000 customers. The entire control system had to be replaced, because the old ABB system was obsolescent, and this was achieved without shutting down operations. Guard has also created design templates for the operational control system for the new Oset water treatment plant. This is a big plus, since the same crews will be operating both plants. In August 2017 we signed a seven-year contract with Guard to modernise and replace programmable logic controllers at 159 substations.
We also signed a 10-year service contract to secure the expertise and technical quality that Guard provides.

Elektronix ASAt Elektronix, we value the close working relationship we've enjoyed with Guard over many years. Together we've supplied communication solutions and CCTV systems to a number of industrial and infrastructure projects. I am thinking in particular of the Bommestad-Sky road project, where we supplied advanced networks and camera solutions for the project's tunnels. Guard's engineers are true professionals with great communication and project management skills. The company is also willing to bring in external expertise when needed. As a supplier, we've learned a lot through our working relationship with Guard, and we look forward to working with them on more challenging and exciting projects in future.

Salsnes FilterFor us, high quality, ability to deliver, flexibility and ability to compete globally are essential. It's also crucial for us to have suppliers that understand our customers' needs and our need for a rapid response when a customer has issues. Suppliers that we sign contracts with are required to deliver systems that can be commissioned and optimised remotely from our offices in Namsos, Trondheim and Oslo. We carry out regular benchmarking of suppliers and constantly expect more from them.
