NORWAY -- Norwegian communications regulator Nkom and water resources and energy directorate NVE are seeking comments by 20 November concerning guidelines for use of telecoms and wind power generation. Nkom said in same cases, wind turbines can affect and disrupt communication services. The guidelines will be finalised and published after the hearing.

The two agencies propose that telecoms operators should be involved in the wind power infrastructure concession process as early as possible. The consultation also concerns measures to remedy any disruption or interference.

The guidelines will apply to infrastructure that is already established, whose construction has begun, and which is still at the planning stage. They will safeguard telecoms networks that were already set up before there was a recognised, detailed plan for wind power. Nkom referred to safeguarding frequency permits.

Telecom network development taking place after detailed plans for wind power have been approved, must adapt to the wind power, regardless of whether this is expansion of existing telecoms infrastructure or a new network.
