The Arjeplog Times Your weekly paper with news, views & interviews. Since 90/91. 22nd season.

Cooperation between World Leaders Colmis and Millbrook are world leading in providing test facilities in their respective fields and now they are going to work together to provide year-round testing services in all climatic conditions. This is the initial sentence in a document written by Miguel Fragoso, managing director of Millbrook Proving Grounds on Wednesday this week. Together with David Cock he visited Arjeplog to sign this agreement with Colmis. The two companies have entered into a joint agreement to provide a wide spectrum of test and development services across the global car industry and other sectors such as energy. This cooperation will be launched at the Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2013 in Stuttgart this coming June. Miguel Fragoso, managing director of Millbrook, said, “Colmis is a world centre of excellence for extreme cold climatic conditions and we are proud to have reached this agreement with them. There is no question in my mind that together we will offer to the car industry one of the most comprehensive test and development packages”. Harald Fjellström, managing director of Colmis said, “Millbrook’s deep experience and expertise will be of great

value to us and our clients as we move on together in this cooperation”. Fjellström was very happy to share this great news first of all with all readers of The Arjeplog Times.

The Largest Test Track Lake in the World

Lake Kakel is probably the lake with the most ice tracks in the world. The lake is situated north west of the town of Arjeplog and is ten kilometres long. On this lake, which is part of Hornavan, there are ice tracks made by Icemakers, Colmis and Revi and the

companies using the tracks include Fiat, Opel, GM, BMW, Jaguar LandRover, Haldex, Mando, Hitachi and several others. Another lake with many tracks is Lake Uddjaur used by BOSCH, Daimler, Knorr-Bremse, Mobis, Laponie & Porsche, among others.

This & That

School gets a brand-new BMW

• Hornavanskolan, the secondary high school (gymnasieskolan) in Arjeplog might not have any new students when the new year starts in autumn. Only about 10 pupils have registered their interest in enrolling at the school for the new year. This could be the first step leading to the closing down of the school, which was opened in 1995. • There are six social democrat members of Parliament from Norrbotten and they are all committed to start a discussion with the government as to what steps can be taken in order to help small municipalities (kommuner) such as Arjeplog and Arvidsjaur to survive. There are 349 delegates in the Swedish government and Maria Stenberg is the only member of parliament from Arjeplog. • On Wednesday March 20, it is the vernal or spring equinox here in the northern hemisphere. This is the date when day and night are about the same length. This day also marks the beginning of lighter days and we know that the day will get longer and longer until midsummer, when we have 24 hours of daylight. This is especially important for people in the north as it has been so dark for so long and seeing the light is rejuvenating. Another good thing is that the sun actually gives off a fair amount of warmth now, which is much appreciated by locals. • In last week’s issue of The Arjeplog Times, we wrote that the future of Icemakers will no doubt be in the hands of Josef, only son of Lars Sundström and Lena Rönnholm. Josef ’s surname (family name) is Rönnholm and not Sundström, as we wrote. In Sweden there are many couples that live together as married and they often keep the names that they

This is a convertible version of the BMW 135 that Hornavanskolan will receive as a gift from BMW. It is not a picture of the actual car that they will get.

BMW is donating a brand-new sports car to Hornavanskolan (the secondary high school). It is a nice blue BMW 135 that will be given to the school during a ceremony next Tuesday. The German ambassador and representatives of BMW Sweden will attend the ceremony at Hotel Lyktan. The man behind this generous gift is, of course, Wilhelm Cordes. He says that they have always had a very good relationship with Hornavanskolan and because he practically lives in Arjeplog he told his bosses in Germany that the students really need a car to work on.

received when they were born. When these couples have children, the children sometimes take the father’s name and sometimes the mother’s surname and sometimes both names. Sometimes children will change their name, when they are old enough to decide for themselves. So within the same family, you can find one child with the father’s surname and one child with the mother’s surname. Josef has taken his mother, Lena’s surname and she is pleased about this because as she says, there is a risk that the name ‘Rönnholm’ might die out as there are almost only girls born into the family.

Cordes says that previously BMW has donated two motor bikes and complete diesel and petrol engines. The car, that is for the Japanese market, has the steering wheel on the right side. Apart from this it is a current sports model BMW.

Candid interview with a car tester

The Hot Seat mechanical lifts to get up hills. I also like mountainbiking. In Arjeplog I like to go cross country skiing on the trails in the forest and I bring my skis with me from Germany. I also like snow-mobiling here.

Name: Guido Nürk. Age: 47. Family: Wife and 2 daughters.

What is good in Arjeplog? The testing is very good here. I like the nature and the silence. Going through the forest on skis is wonderful.

Home: A small town outside Stuttgart, Germany. Company: Daimler AG.

What is bad in Arjeplog? There is nothing really bad here. We have everything we need and things work well.

Occupation: I am a test engineer and I organize the testing here. Favourite food: A good steak with vegetables. In Arjeplog I like the reindeer meat and the lax (salmon) is good. Dream car: Mercedes CL 500 4-wheel drive. White in colour. Present car: I drive a Mercedes Smart Cabrio. It is a good car for commuting to work.

Guido Nürk, Daimler AG

Spare time activities: I spend a lot of my spare time doing sports and often with my family and our dog, a large poodle. We go ski touring (Tourenski in German) which is an activity where long distances are covered on skis. Touring is generally done on trails which are not maintained, and without any

What music you enjoy? All kinds of music. I like old rock music and new pop music and I also listen to classical music. What is important in life? Family, friends and health. For me, it is important to play sports with my friends and do sporting activities with my family. A good job is also important, one that you are satisfied with.

The Freedom to Roam - Everyman’s Right The freedom to roam, or everyman’s right is the general public’s right to access public or privately owned land for recreation and exercise. The right is called the right of public access to the wilderness or the right to roam. In Swedish it is known as Allemansrätten. In Sweden this freedom is granted by the Constitution because “everyone shall have access to nature”. As in other Nordic countries, the Swedish right to roam comes with the responsibility to look after the countryside; the maxim is “do not disturb, do not destroy”.

Allemansrätten gives a person the right to access, walk, cycle, ride, ski, and camp on any land - with the exception of private gardens and land under cultivation. There are restrictions for nature reserves and other protected areas. It also gives the right to pick wild flowers, mushrooms and berries (not the legally protected ones) but not to hunt. Swimming in any lake and putting an unpowered boat on any water is permitted unless explicitly forbidden. Visiting beaches and walking by a shoreline is permitted, unless

it is within the immediate vicinity of a residence. Since 1975 it is generally not permitted to build a new house near (generally 100 m) from a beach and/ or shoreline. This is in order to better protect access to water and the right to walk along beaches. However, in a place like Arjeplog, it is quite ridiculous as we have so much space. You are allowed to drive a car on a private road unless explicitly signposted otherwise and you are allowed to put up a tent on any uncultivated land for a night or two.

Pupils and Car testing

M

onday morning, Hornavanskolan is full of life again, pupils and teachers are back after one week of spring leave. A school should be full of life and special occasions. When you work with people, one day is not like any other day and that makes it so interesting and fun.

M

y work as a work placement coordinator at Hornavanskolan is fantastic. I have the privilege together with the pupils to find work placement opportunities for them in Sweden and in Europe. It is so interesting to sit down and talk to them, to find out their goals and to see them grow as individuals.

A

t the moment I have third-year pupils at Volvo Cars, Opus Bilprovning, Car Events, Driving Event Producers in Sweden, Bull star in Norway, Millbrook Proving Ground, Jaguar Landrover in the UK, Audi AG, BMW AG and Porsche AG in Germany. They have just completed their first week and have three more to go. They will come back with a lot of impressions, knowledge and self-confidence.

D

uring the years I have worked with many automotive companies and I have learnt that it is important to meet people where they are at the moment, to communicate and to be open-minded. If we succeed in teaching the pupils these important skills we educate them for the future. They do not only need knowledge of technical subjects and mathematic/physics skills, they need to be encouraged to be active citizens and participate in society.

A

t Hornavanskolan we work with entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial learning. They study cultures and manners in other countries as well as how to become a good and open-minded citizen.

I

t is a privilege to cooperate with so many companies and this has taught me so much over the years. These companies have helped Hornavanskolan in so many ways that we would not be where we are today without them. I do not think Arjeplog would be either.

P

ersonally I think that all those people, pupils and staff within the automotive industry as well as foreign contacts, make it much more enjoyable to live in Arjeplog. They all make marks in our land. I wish you all the best. Cathrin Söderberg Work placement coordinator Hornavanksolan

Yvonne Marklund, Norrskensglas – this week’s local We are very close to nature, we live right in the midst of it and I love that.

Name: Yvonne Marklund. Age: I will be 54 on March 23.

What’s bad in Arjeplog? It is hard to think of something bad here but perhaps the distance to a large city is bad, especially when various services are being cut down. For example, there is no doctor on duty at night and on the weekend and that is not good at all.

Family: Husband Kent, 2 children and 2 grandchildren. Home: Jutis (Moose village) a little village 42 km from the town of Arjeplog. Company: Norrskensglas, glass studio that I own and run together with Sarah Öjbrandt.

What music do you listen to? All music except country and jazz. I love, for example Michael Jackson and his album ‘Killer’ is the best.

Favourite food: Fish, from the sea as well as fresh water fish from the lakes. I also like to eat Chinese food when we go to the city. Dream car: I like cars in general and specifically large, practical and comfortable cars. I don’t have a dream car but a new large Volvo would probably suit me. Present car: A white Hyundai I 30 which is small and stable. It does not use a lot of petrol, which is very important, as I drive from Jutis to the town of Arjeplog and back, almost every day. My husband and I also have a Subaru Legacy Outback, a 4-wheel drive that is perfect for hunting and fishing and other outdoor activities. Spare-time activities: I love the outdoor life. As soon as I have a chance I like to go outside, it does not really matter what I do, as long as I can be outdoors. In summer, I like digging in my garden, trolling/fishing on our boat, walking in the forest with my dogs. In autumn I follow my husband when he goes hunting. I would not like to kill the animals myself, but I love going with him, just being outdoors. When it is very cold or bad weather in the winter, I enjoy being indoors, baking or cleaning and fixing things in my house. I love my house! And now that I have grandchildren, I drop everything when I have a chance to spend time with them.

Yvonne Marklund, Norrskensglas

What’s good in Arjeplog? It is good that everyone knows everyone, it gives a feeling of safety and security. You know who to speak to, if you want something done or if you need help. There is a sense of community here. I think there is a freedom in living in a small place. There are about 40 people who live permanently in Jutis. Yvonne Marklund and Sarah Öjbrandt started their glass studio and shop in July 2010. Sarah is the expert glassblower and Yvonne is the assistant but she admits that she sometimes does try to produce glass articles on her own. They design all their own products and say this is what makes their work creative and fun. For Easter, they have made glass roosters, hens, chicks and eggs that are for sale.

Sarah Öjbrandt making a rooster of glass, which involves a few critical parts during the processs.

What’s important in life? Health is the most important thing both for myself and my closest family. Nothing else matters when you do not have good health. My family is very important to me as is having meaningful work and enjoyable spare time activities. It is also good to have enough money to live the life you want. I think it is so important to value what you have right now, to appreciate what you have and capture the moment! And then, of course, it is important not to pollute and destroy the earth.

New Mobile App for Proving Grounds A new app for a smartphone will open gates and tell you how many people are already on the test tracks. It will show exactly where you are and if you drive too fast it will report this to Maria in the reception. It will also help customers know if they are booked on a track, as well as many other things. A small company in Piteå called Rajd has developed an app for the smartphone (only android at the moment) that is specially developed for proving grounds. Now it is being tested at Colmis Proving Grounds and if everything works well, the system will be used in full force next season. “Safety is the most important thing for us”, says vice manager Peter Gyllenberg at Colmis. At the moment ten phones with the app installed are being tested at Colmis. If they and their customers are satisfied with Nelson, as it is called, there could be hundreds of phones installed with the app next season. The app cannot be installed in private phones at present. Maria Berlin can follow the customers on the tracks via the app that is connected to her computer in the reception at Colmis.

Peter Wedin, Rajd and Peter Gyllenberg, Colmis with a Nelsonequipped smartphone.

The app can do a lot of things, such as preventing unauthorised people from entering certain tracks. It will open barriers in an emergency so that rescue services can get inside, for example if there has been an accident. It will even be able, later on, to give information relevant to testing and check that drivers behave correctly and follow the rules. On a computer in the reception, Maria Berlin, can see where all the people with the app are and she can even see how fast they are driving. Peter Wedin, Rajd said that they started developing this system ten years ago and it is soon ready for full scale operation.

Christian did it! Christian Bock cycled from Arvidsjaur to Mo i Rana in Norway and back via the Blue Road, a trip of nearly 700 kilometres. The amazing thing was that he did it in February battling temperatures below minus 30°C and sleeping in a tent. See The Arjeplog Times nr 7. Christian is now back home in Austria and happy that the trip was successful. He had many adventures and some problems. In his report he explains that he chose February because he wanted new experiences and to promote personal growth. He wanted to know how and if he could cope with such extreme temperatures. How did he cope? “Very well in general, but bad mistakes made some nights in the tent miserable. I tried to dry my boots in the sleeping bag and woke up freezing cold. It was Christian Bock minus 30!” he wrote.

Camping on a frozen lake provided sound of cracking ice that kept him awake and a little scared. Good moments included handling extreme situations by being very smart. Coming into a warm room, a hot shower and a warm meal were greatly appreciated. His final words in the report are: “My fears and anxiety beforehand, of what could happen and how to deal with it again confirmed one of my credos: “Risks are not so scary once you take them.”
