Northern Environmental and Water Solutions (NEWS) is a market leading provider of customized and environmentally based sewage solutions in Northern Europe.
NEWS was created in 2014 through the merger of Skandinavisk Kommunalteknik (SKT), a Litorina portfolio company since 2011, and FANN VA-teknik (FANN).
SKT, founded in the late 1970’s, has grown to become the leading provider of pressurized sewage solutions in the Nordic region, with offices in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Poland.
FANN, founded in 1990, is an environmental engineering company with a market leading position in the Nordic region within individual sewage solutions based on passive treatment technology. The company operates through own subsidiaries in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Poland and through partners in a number of other European countries.
Litorina’s strategy with the formation of NEWS is to become the leading provider in Northern Europe of environmentally based sewage solutions for households not connected to municipal wastewater treatment, as well as to realize a number of tangible synergies between SKT and FANN. Growth is primarily expected from continued organic expansion in combination with selected acquisitions in Sweden and in Northern Europe.
