Finnish road maintenance equipment manufacturer Snowek Oy and Skjetne Maskin AS have signed a Norwegian dealership agreement on the latest European street sweeping innovation of Trombia sweeper attachments. Trombia attachments became in June 2017 the world’s first sweeping attachments specialising on waterless sweeping that passed the European PM10 street dust test at highest possible ratings.


Skjetne Maskin AS will now become the official dealer of Trombia products in Norwegian regions of Trøndelag, Nordland and Møre og Romsdal. Earlier Snowek announced the distribution agreement for Trombia sweepers with Anleggsgruppen AS, who is distributing Trombia across Norway. Skjetne Maskin AS adds to the Norwegian Trombia distribution a regional dealership with local presence in the key regions of Trøndelag, Nordland and Møre og Romsdal.

“We are very happy to expand our Norwegian distribution with a strong regional dealer in the central-northern parts of Norway. Skjetne Maskin AS has worked with our high end snow plows and sweepers in the past and we are convinced they have the right ambition to distribute Trombia, which is the true flagship product in the Nordic street maintenance industry. Norway is a tailor-made market for Trombia’s sweeping capabilities, as for example the countless amount of tunnels cannot be watered while sweeping winter time. The products have been in active use for 2 years now in Finland and after claiming the 3 stars in the world-leading PM10 street dust test in June, we are now launching extensive export business first in the Nordics”, highlights Antti Nikkanen, Managing Director of Snowek.

 Skjetne Maskin AS , are proud to have this product in our product line.

We are at the moment having demos of trombia In Trondheim. And will continue showing these products for our new and old customers during next couple of months”, describes Kristian Skjetne, Managing Director of Skjetne Maskin AS the launch and availability.

“Our Norwegian Trombia distribution is now ready with exclusive partnerships with Skjetne Maskin and Anleggsgruppen. The distribution is now up and running with demos starting by both of our partners in January-February. We expect Norwegian municipalities, municipal contractors and industrial contractors to adopt Trombia technology with an accelerating speed this year”, concludes Nikkanen.


INFO: Trombia sweepers operate without watering the streets


Trombia sweepers are revolutionary sweeping attachments developed to make it possible to deliver the highest level of street dust and debris cleaning result with a hydraulic wheel loader attachment and without watering the streets for dust control reasons. Investment costs for Trombia products are marginal compared to the likes of self-propelled city vacuum sweepers or large road sweeping vacuum trucks, but the cleaning efficiency matches with the very best of the global vacuum sweeping trucks according to the European EUnited PM10 street dust test.
