Drone assignment

FVB has gotten a large assignment from Eon in Örebro to create documentation of newly-built district heating pipes using a drone. The flight is done before refilling and includes both surveying and photography. Eon has asked us to do this for all major new construction projects, regardless of the consultant hired for the planning. André Larsson is one of our two drone pilots and he works on this assignment along with Rickard Skogsdal and Clas Hammarlund. In the next issue, you can read more about these assignments.

Work, inspiration, and awards at this year’s FVB Day

On Friday, September 14, all of FVB gathered for the traditional FVB day. This year, the conference was held at Steam Hotel in Västerås. As usual, the day was filled with useful information as well as coffee and cookies. In the morning, we refined our work processes in smaller groups. After a tasty lunch attended by FVB’s Board, we got a great presentation from the entire Board and from our talented external Board members. Most of the afternoon was devoted to a fast-paced inspirational lecture from the trend spotter Johnny Sundin titled “Love What You Don’t Know – Yet.” In the evening we toured the old steam power plant, visited the spa and had a nice dinner. During dinner, prizes were awarded to FVB employees. The winners this year were Maria Rosenlöf Jonasson, Employee of the Year, and Todd Sivertsson, Coworker of the Year. We also celebrated some of FVB’s faithful employees who have worked here 30 years or more.
