Holmenkollen: Royalty in aluminium

When the best ski jumpers in the world prepare for flight at Oslo's Holmenkollbakken at the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships, Norway's royal family will watch from their new aluminium-and-glass arena suite – complete with aluminium building components from Hydro

"Holmenkollbakken is the most-visited tourist attraction in Norway, it is an icon in Norwegian ski sport and it is a landmark in Oslo. We are very proud to have won the opportunity to deliver aluminium building systems for this fantastic sports arena," says Ulf Alfredsson, who is responsible for Hydro's building systems activities in Scandinavia. Alfredsson promises that Norway's royal family will be standing on solid ground – on aluminium – when they enter their private suite at Holmenkollen for the world championships.
