The major upgrade of the Norwegian main grid not only entails constructing new pylons and power lines. Installations that are no longer needed are now being removed in a number of places.
The section from Kvandal to Bardufoss became operational today. This means that the entire power line, from Ofoten to Balsfjord, is complete and operational at 420 kV.
Ground and construction work at Bardufoss substation will be carried out by Aktør som Bygger.
The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) has conducted an environmental audit at a number of locations along the development.
Statnett's compensation to affected landowners and rightsholders on the section Ofoten - Balsfjord will be fixed by judicial assessment.
