New strategic acquisition

COWI AS, earlier this August acquired a 100 percent ownership in Aqua Team – The Norwegian Water Technology Center. The company changed its name from that date to Aqua Team COWI AS. It will continue as a wholly-owned subsidiary, led by one of the founders, Eilen A. Vik. She has been with the company since it was established in 1984.

Aquateam, with its 27 employees, is a strong name in applied research and advisory services related to water-related environmental issues. Managing Director at COWI, Terje Bygland Nikolaisen, is very satisfied.

COWI and Aquateam a good match

Aqua Team leader Eilen A. Vik, also is optimistic about the future. -In order to exploit opportunities in the market and offer our employees new development, we wanted to be part of a larger company. COWI’s professional organization and management expertise and capacity, is spot on, she says.
