Workshop and vehicles

There is a workshop and two vehicles available at Kristineberg.

Workshop

The workshop is equipped for work with engines, wood, metal and plastics. Our skilled personell do manufacture, repair and service. We do small jobs for researchers at no extra charge and as time permits. If there is need for larger jobs; ask for offer. Only workshop technicians may work in the workshop. A research workshop, with a basic set of tools is available to employees and researchers.

Vehicles at Kristineberg

At Kristineberg there is a Mercedes Citan, for use in the local area and transport of cargo. It has two seats and a cargo space that holds up to 3.8 m3.

There is a trailer you can borrow (maximum weight 750 kg).

There is also a battery-powered flatbed moped that can be used for smaller, shorter transports.

Bicycles at the station

At Kristineberg there are ten bicycles, and one bike trailer, that are free for all guests and students to use at any time. The bikes are funded from University of Gothenburg’s internal Climate Fund.

Important when using the bikes:

  • Only borrow the bikes that have an orange spray-paint-label that says “Kristinebergs cykelpool”. Other bikes are private.
  • Make sure that the bike seems safe to ride. Test the brakes and make sure that the steering works and that handle bar, seat and wheels are fastened. You are responsible for your own safety.
  • Check the tire pressure! If the tires need filling there is an air nozzle by the coat hangers in the lobby which connects to an outlet in the wall by the bicycle stand in front of the building (see picture below).
  • Bike no. 10 is equipped with a connector for the bike trailer.
  • Use a helmet! Bicycle helmets are found on top of the coat hangers in the lobby.
  • Lights and reflectors are required by law when riding after sundown. Make sure that the lights work and the reflectors are in place if you are cycling after dark.
  • If anything brakes or if you need any advice regarding the bikes, please contact the reception.
