In recent years, Norkring has been working on securing energy both to and within the transmitter stations. Analyses show that about 65% of all disruption to Norkring’s services is due to the loss of external power. Several initiatives have been implemented, and operation figures show that these have been effective.
“This is a major boost for anyone using Norkring’s infrastructure”, says acting Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Norkring Site Management, Kristian Lunde, who highlights the importance of focussing on this area.
Almost 400 surge protectors that handle lightning strikes and power surges have been rolled out. In addition, 40 new units are in place to keep broadcasting and e-commerce services on air. All units start automatically, and new automation and remote control has been installed in dozens of units.
