New power line. 

The existing 132 kV power line between Kvandal and Kanstadbotn is approaching the end of its technical service life and new investments must be made.

Parts of the stretch – the subsea cable over Tjeldsundet – have already been renovated and commissioned.

Licence application was submitted to the NVE in April 2018. Statnett sent notification of the project to the NVE in June 2016 and received a decision from the NVE in February 2017, with requirements for studies, which are now included with the licence application.

The new power line will replace the existing line.
