Renewed consent to use the reserve power plant at Nyhamna

Consent: Statnett SF has been granted consent for continued use of to the reserve power plant at Nyhamna up to 1 July 2014.

In a letter dated 1 October 2008, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) granted its consent for use of Statnett's reserve power plant at Nyhamna (link). This consent was conditional on the Norwegian Pollution Control Authority (SFT) issuing an emission permit valid until 2010.

SFT has now issued a new emission permit valid until 1 July 2014, and our new consent reflects this new condition.

The plant will be commissioned in the event of a very strained power situation, and requires that the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) issues its consent to start-up of the plant by means of an administrative decision.
