Environment news - International noise challenge

Swedavia has launched an international innovation challenge aimed at reducing ground noise in the residential area of Bromma Kyrka – close to Stockholm-Bromma Airport.

The Swedavia Airport Innovation Challenge 2014 is inviting people to develop feasible solutions and address the challenge holistically.

The competition is open to all, with individuals and teams welcome to enter, and the winner will get 100,000 SEK (€11,200) and the opportunity to see the idea come to life at Bromma Stockholm Airport.

Jenny Svärd, environmental and quality manager at Bromma Stockholm Airport, says: “We are arranging an innovation challenge that both can reduce ground noise and also can be a positive element in the area for our neighbours. “We hope to get many interesting and innovative solutions during this competition.

“It is very important for us and our neighbours to find the best solution since it will make a difference with positive effects for the Bromma Kyrka area. For Swedavia, environmental and climate smart solutions are highly prioritized in every step in our development of the airport. Therefore, we expect high quality and a holistic perspective in the winning solution.”

Swedavia is already one of the world’s greenest airport operators having been carbon neutral since 2006.
