Norway approves Arctic Circle power transmission line

Norway‘s state-owned grid operator Statnett won approval to build a 420kV power transmission line in northern Norway. The infrastructure project carries a price tag of as much as $600 million, according to reports.

The power delivery project is meant to encourage new wind power generation, according to its backers.

The line will run about 100 miles from a substation in Nordland County north to Balsfjord in Troms County. It will primarily be built parallel to an existing 420-kV line, with 62 miles of a 132-kV line to be replaced.
