Themed around a country of forests, fjords, mountains and coastlines, the Norwegian experience will consist of 15 model “trees” each offering different experiences. The topic "Norway, powered by nature” is also a reflection of Fläkt Woods’ philosophy of being environmentally conscious, delivering fresh, clean and healthy air for all its customers.

"The quality of life in Norway is great because you have a very close relationship between city and nature. In designing the pavilion, we hope to bring nature into the city," said Reinhard Kropf and Siv Helene Stangeland, a Norwegian couple who are the chief designers of the pavilion.

Included in the contract is the provision of 38 Flexicool® QPBA passive chilled beams, which provide efficient cost-effective cooling, and with the absence of moving parts require little maintenance. The units are flush-mounted and were supplied in narrow configurations with 290mm widths.

The EU air handlers incorporate high efficiency fans equipped with airflow measurement devices. The 2 supply and exhaust EU units, feature high efficiency particulate filters with patented sealing frame to allow clean & rapid filter, replacement run-around coil recovery systems, heating, integrated local cooling and integrated local controls.

The Shanghai Expo is expected to generate the largest number of visitors in the history of the world's fairs in terms of gross numbers. The expo Logo features the Chinese character 世 'world' modified to represent three people together with the 2010 date.

It will take place from May 1–October 31, 2010 and is themed as "Better City – Better Life" which signifies Shanghai's new status in the 21st century as a major economic and cultural centre.

The site of the event is the Nanpu Bridge-Lupu Bridge region in the center of Shanghai along both sides of the Huangpu River. The area of the Expo 2010 covers 5.28 km².
