U-Cont Ltd closed a deal of carrying out a new self service filling station chain to Norway with Norwegian filling station company Uno-X

By the agreement U-Cont Ltd will deliver all the chain's Uno-X ‘light type’ filling station prefab elements including structural units, tanks, piping, electricity and the design of all. The deal is the biggest single contract in the company’s 44 year history and one of the biggest filling station deliveries ever made in Northern Europe. The total number of filling stations will reach the level of one hundred, depending on local approvals.

U-Cont Ltd has delivered different types of systems that are put together in factory for not only filling stations but also for waste to bio-ethanol production plants, asphalt factory units, power plants and other different needs of the industry.

”We have developed our operations systematically towards new services that include also the planning and development of our customer's business. The Norway's deal is a great example of the significance of wide service in making a deal in today's difficult competitive situation. Our Norwegian customer bases trust on us after ten years of acquaintanceship. Uno-X directors understood the great potential for cost reduction and quality improvement that can be achieved by relying on a genuine systematically designed, industrial model of prefabricated operations instead of the traditional model of construction. The deal gives us a good take-off board away from the recession. The manufacturing of the filling stations will employ over nearly one third of our factory's capacity, so there will be left enough capacity for other needs when the amount of investment will rise again. The right volume will also give volume effectiveness advantage for our customers who's needs aren't this big,” states Jari Sistonen, the managing director of U-Cont Ltd.
