Netel offers preparation, planning and construction of electricity distribution networks. Today we offer our services in power in Sweden, Norway and Finland.
The main services provided relate to measuring stations, power distribution lines on the ground and in the air, high-voltage cables, smart meters and electric car chargers, and street lighting. The services are provided in regional and distribution networks with voltages of up to 145 kV. Netel does not currently focus on transmission networks.
In Sweden, we focus on the construction, installation and maintenance of electricity distribution networks. In Norway, our subsidiary Nett-Tjenester is one of the few players that can provide planning and design services up to 145 kV. Nett-Tjenester designs, builds and orders, for example, switchgear and distribution lines. Netel does not provide planning or design services in Sweden as these services are normally performed by the respective network owners.
Our Swedish customer base are primarily network owners. The Norwegian customer base also includes power producers, industrial customers, construction companies and municipalities. This difference is largely due to a monopoly situation in Sweden, where administrative authorities and state-owned companies plan the electricity networks.
Within fixed networks, we are a well-established and experienced actor with long customer relationships for the rollout and maintenance of fiber and cable TV networks in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK and Germany. Within mobile networks, Netel is one of the few companies with a complete offer and we operate in Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Netel offers turnkey solutions for both fiber and cable TV networks, for example planning and expansion, upgrades, installation, preventive and corrective maintenance. The offer for telecom and mobile data network systems covers the entire value chain, including planning, permit management, expansion, installation, commissioning and integration.
Our strength is the ability to support customers with the entire process from assessing the suitability of facilities, building the equipment, integrating it into the telecom operators’ networks, documenting and responding to preventive and corrective maintenance. We also offer logistics services through cooperation agreements to facilitate an efficient process in warehousing and logistics, where components from different suppliers are collected, consolidated and delivered to the facilities. This both contributes to keeping costs at a low level and provides positive environmental aspects as a result of less handling and shorter transports.
Our fixed network customers are mainly network owners, network operators and tenant-owner associations. The agreements mainly cover fiber expansion, coaxial network upgrades and long-term framework agreements for maintenance. Key customers include several of the largest telecom operators in Northern Europe and broadband providers.
Our mobile network customers are mainly telecom operators, owners of mobile towers and system providers. The agreements mainly cover expansion projects followed by framework agreements for maintenance. Among the key customers are several of the largest telecom companies in Northern Europe.
In 2021, we started building our business in district heating, water and sewage in Sweden. In the next step, we will establish ourselves in other countries. We have built the business through acquisitions, which makes us a well-established and experienced player with deep relationships across the entire value chain for both construction and maintenance in district heating, water and sewage infrastructure, including associated civil engineering work.
The most important services we offer are expansion and upgrades of infrastructure for district heating, water and sewage. A significant part of the services we perform are associated civil engineering work.
Our customers are municipal and private infrastructure owners as well as real estate and construction companies. A significant part of the services is performed through framework agreements.
