KTV Group partner
Kennet Nilsen from Askøy, nursed a dream of being self- employed for years. In 1992 he set up a high pressure cleaning business and worked around the clock. As a young entrepreneur he had to handle all the roles a one-man business implies.
Nilsen specialized in professional cleaning within offshore, industry and property, and as business grew, he employed more and more people. The KTV Group is now a highly regarded business within its markets, and Nilsen acts as CEO and within business development. He describes himself as a visionary type, stimulated by challenge and innovation more than money and glamour.
KTV Group has had some attractive offers, but Nilsen still thinks that developing the business is even more attractive. – They say that everything has a price, but I don’t agree. The most important thing is a meaningful life, and I’m not put on this earth to move money around, play the stock market or shop for things I don’t need. In common with many others, I like to get up in the morning and do an interesting job. Nothing beats the feeling of having satisfied customers, says Nilsen.
KTV Group has defined a set of values which are inclusive, and encourage social engagement. – We have a definite YES mentality in the company, which is demonstrated at all levels of the business, adds Nilsen.
KTV Group has built a brand platform focusing on high visibility in its chosen fields, and has a long-term plan for setting up new hubs nationally and internationally.
A presence at key locations in Norway and the supply of nationwide services, competing for tenders at national level.
Setting up in countries outside Norway, especially in oil-rich regions.

Facade cleaning with drones
KTV Group has started developing a purpose-built drone to be used for washing of facades and roofs. A drone that is to be used for the tall buildings and high-rises.
We see that the development of drones has caught a tremendous pace, and the equipment and technology that is already on the market, is enabling this idea now.
The result will be cheaper prices for customers, and it will solve facade cleaning tasks without the use of scaffolding, platforms or façade climbers. The solution is also very HSE friendly.
KTV Group Self Cleaner
In 2013 KTV Group started development where the goal was to find a new method for cleaning facades without using high pressure.
Already in 2014 we started testing, and in early 2015 KTV Group method Self Cleaner was ready. Since then, over 500,000 m2 facade has been washed with this method, with very satisfying results.
No use of high pressure and the same strain on the surface as normal rain. The best thing is that it in many cases actually gave a better result than normal high pressure washer.
The method is now being used as a permanent method for cleaning facades.
Maintenance agreements with duration of 5-20 years
In 2009 KTV Group started development of an entirely new type of maintenance agreements. A maintenance agreement that would have duration of 5-20 years.
The intention of the agreements was simply: up in quality and down in price for the customers. Already at the end of 2009, the concept was clear, and the first agreements was ready.
The first agreements started with only exterior/facade cleaning, but was later expanded to include all of the maintenance of larger buildings or tank farms/equipment.
KTV Group now have over 500,000 m2 surface in long-term contracts up to 20 years and is a pioneer in technology. The method is unique in the world.
