Building and operating an electric society with competence, technology and energy (zeal).

Electric power

We plan, build and operate electrical high and low voltage systems. This includes the construction, operation and maintenance of transformer substations, lines and cables at voltage levels up to and including 420 kV.

We also provide operation and maintenance services. We are on call and on duty whenever something goes wrong. We have repeatedly proven our ability to handle situations with major fallouts due to extreme weather conditions or natural disasters.

We work all over Norway, but we consider Southern Norway our stronghold.

Transport

We plan, build and operate complete electrical infrastructure for roads, tunnels and railways.

Smarter roads are safer roads. Otera helps develop and build state-of-the-art roads and rails with technical solutions designed to protect human lives. Otera offers security solutions that promotes a good environment, safety and cost-efficiency.

Otera designs, supplies, assembles and maintains all types of lighting systems. We also provide infrastructure such as cameras, fiber communication to operational centres, climate stations and gas detection. This enhances road safety and socio-economic profitability.

HSE

Otera is a company in which employees should be as healthy when they go home, as they were when they came to work. Our HSE slogan Every Employee Safe Home underlines this. We cannot accept that our employees are injured while at work.
A job should always be performed in an efficient and profitable manner, but this is always trumped by safety. Otera strives to ensure that employees think preventive safety in all their work tasks.
