Norway’s Water and Energy Directorate (NVE) reported observations of drones in the vicinity of Norwegian power installations.

The observations have been reported to Norway’s Water and Energy Directorate (NVE) through the Norwegian Energy Supply’s Preparedness Organization (KBO), which includes around 170 power and grid companies, Europower writes.

“Things have been reported and observed that are not experienced as normal during the period. We see that there is great vigilance in the industry,” NVE’s section manager for emergency preparedness, Eldri Holo, told the website.

Holo did not want to say where, when, or how many times drones have been observed at Norwegian power installations.

“There have (also) been observations of cars and people with cameras. That’s the short version. People who behave a little strangely, or who are considered to be behaving strangely,” she said.

The Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) has assisted NVE and clarified what type of observations can be defined as suspicious activity and what cases the power and grid companies should pass on to the authorities.
