In Norway the winter lasts about half of each year. For the Norwegians it’s a dark time in which, once outside, they always have to account for relatively difficult weather conditions that restrict sight and mobility. As a result, over the years they have developed excellent equipment to keep the winter at bay.
One company that has attained world fame in the battle against winter weather is Øveraasen from Gjøvik, an hour north of Oslo, not far from the renowned skating capital Hamar. Øveraasen specialises in snow ploughs and machines that suck up snow and safely blow it onto the verge. Especially among airport operators, Øveraasen is the name that sets the standard. From the airport in Tibet to Amsterdam’s Schiphol and back to Korea via New York, Øveraasen snow ploughs and snow blowers can be found clearing the roads at the airports of all these cities and countries. Øveraasen also developed and produces the strongest snow blower in the world, with an engine rated at 2200 hp.
You might not think so, but besides wide, open areas where planes land and take off, airports also have plenty of tight spots and small corners at the end of the apron and surrounding the various buildings. And wouldn’t you know it? That is where the most snow accumulates. This is when VSE comes into the picture. Øveraasen continues to build ever longer and larger machines. By making use of the steered axles for which VSE delivers the ETS-1 for example, the machines from the Norwegian snow removal specialist are now much more flexible and versatile. The consequence of this insight is that for almost two years now almost all machines built in Gjøvik have been fitted with a VSE steering system.
It should be emphasised that Øveraasen also delivers machines to many other service providers, particularly in the public sector. Øveraasen is a global brand synonymous with impeccable quality. So it is logical that for steering of non-driven axles this company should rely on a top name in the field: VSE.
