Malthus established in Russia
The name is OOO Malthus, and the three O’s signalizes that this is a Russian company. We believe that the city of Murmansk is a good place to start in order to meet the demand for modular based work camps linked to the development of the Shtokman field. OOO Malthus is about to hire a Russian manager who will make sure that we are recognized and ready when the marked opens up to our products.
In Murmansk we are looking to join offices with other Norwegian on site companies. December 2007 Malthus delivered a new office building for Ølen Betong right next to the main road leading to Teriberka (where Shtokman is to establish the onshore LNG-plant) and we might move in with them… Regardless of location, our Russian daughter company is a well planed, long term commitment.
Andrej Boyarchuk is taking the know-how he been accumulated curing his half year training period in our Tromsø branch to Murmansk. There, he will offer the patented Malthus Formwork system for sale or rent, to meet the expected demand due to all the building activities that are to take place in this area. Andrej is well versed in languages and speaks Russian (mother tongue), Norwegian and English. With the necessary qualifications in place, our expectations in this area are very good.
