Lease Object.

This agreement applies to the lease of outdoor property area as shown on the attached map. The area shall be measured in in connection with the takeover inspection, and any deviations shall be updated in Article 4.

The total area comprises approximately 5,000 m2.



The Tenant shall use the property area for parking, technical installations, barracks, storing materials related to the production activities, as well as fencing or similar for securing materials.


Rental period.

The Tenant shall take over the property with effect from takeover of Kamstålbygget in accordance with agreement no 3028A, and shall pay rent from the same date.


The property area situated within 10 meters from building 315 on the south and east side is comprised by the regulation of the lease period, extension option and termination rights in agreement 3028A Article 4, paragraphs 1, 2 and 3.


For the property area as shown on the area map, except for the area referred to in Article 3.1, the lease period is 10 years. During the lease period, the Tenant may terminate the lease with 12 months' written notice, calculated from the expiry of the calendar month during which the termination occurred.


From entering into this agreement and up until 31 December 2021, the Tenant may terminate the agreement with 3 months' written notice, subject to the payment of 6 months' rent from the expiry of the calendar month during which the termination occurred. The property area shall be handed over to the Lessor no later than by the end of the termination period in the same condition it was in at the time of takeover



The rent is calculated based on the measured area, see clause 1 above. From the commencement of the lease and until 30 June 2024, the annual rent per m2 is NOK 34, excluding VAT. Thereafter, the annual rent per m2 is NOK 40 excluding VAT.

The rent is subject to annual index adjustment with effect from 1 January every year, the first time effective from 1 January 2022. The adjustment is based on the development in Statistics Norway's consumer price index. Such adjustment shall not lead to the rent being decreased, unless there is a significant fall in the consumer price index, in which case the parties shall meet to agree on compensating measures.

Agreement no. 3034M

The basic index is the price index as of October 2020, and the annual adjustments are made based on the index figure for the month of October in the year before the adjustment is implemented. The other provisions in the Tenancy Act Chapter 4 regarding adjustment of rent shall not apply to this agreement.

Regardless of the index adjustment set out above, the Lessor is entitled to increase the rent if public fees or taxes applicable to real property increase significantly. Likewise, the Lessor is entitled to adjust the rent in the event that new public charges are introduced on real property. If any other public regulations that entail investment or increased costs are imposed on the Lessor, up to half of the share that fall on the rental object may form basis for adjustment of the rent. If other public regulations that result in investments or increased costs are imposed on the Lessor due to the Tenant's activities, this gives the Lessor the right to adjust the rent correspondingly to the increased costs. Such regulation may take place from the date the amendments receive a cost effect for the Lessor.

The rent is paid in advance in monthly terms due on the first of each month.

After the due date, the Lessor is entitled to calculate interest on overdue rent in accordance with the Late Payment Interest Act.
