New power lines across the country
In the coming decade, Statnett plans to invest between NOK 50 and 70 billion in power lines, transformer stations and international interconnectors. In 2012, Statnett built about 150 kilometres of new grid lines. In 2013, this will be increased to 200 kilometres. Later on, approximately 300 kilometres of new grid lines will be built each year. The development comprises an upgrade of the main grid in southern and western Norway, a reinforcement of the main grid in northern Norway and construction of new interconnectors to Denmark, Germany and the UK.
