The energy supply sector has it’s own extensive telecommunications systems; primarily for operational control (control and monitoring of power installations – production and distribution systems). Operational control systems are built and operated in compliance with the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate’s (NVE) laws and regulations.
The basis for these regulations is the NVE’s Emergency Preparedness Regulations for Energy Supply. Here energy providers and bound by strict requirements for the security of operational control systems, including telecom and data links. Central topics of these regulations include EMP/EMI protection, communications link redundancy, access control, shell security and telecom/data security.
In addition to this, the energy supply sector also provide broadband internet access to the commercial market. The majority of these are fibre based although radio based solutions are also used to a relatively large degree.
The company provide planning and engineering for:
- Project leadership and implementation of “turn-key” projects
- Conduction of risk and vulnerability assessments (ROS)
- Assessment and analysis with implementation of necessary improvements to attain compliance with the requirements of the National Emergency Preparedness regulations.
- Planning and design of telecom network solutions (transmisjon)
- Radio link systems (RL)
- Closed radio networks – Professional Mobile Radio (PMR)
- Civil Works (radio stations and antenna masts, for power supply etc.)
- EMP/EMI protection and testing/compliance measurements for control rooms, telecom/data rooms and radio stations
- Telecom operational control solutions
- Fibre cable systems
- ITV/video surveillance systems
