‘We have brought in additional crews, and people have been out all night to find the problem and connect the electrical power feed back.There are 60 workers there, and we have also ordered the helicopter to help with the inspection today. That is much more effective than crews having to go along the line’, Hanne Liv Refsnes, press officer at Agder Energi’, told Fædrelandsvennen.

There are areas in Aust-Agder where snowfall has been heavy, and power outages have been affected, mainly because trees have fallen across lines.
