Telenor boosts preparedness amid storm alert

F-b.no  08.06.2015

 

Telenor Norway has decided to improve its preparedness efforts in the municipality of Hvaler in connection with a storm announcement in the area.

 

Telenorhar valgt a oke beredskapen pa Hvaler i forbindelse med den varslede stromutkoblingen i natt. Hafslund har som allerede kjent, berammet en utkobling av stromnettet pa Hvaler fra fra sent i kveld klokken 23 til cirka klokken fem tirsdag morgen. Skaden som forarsaket strombruddet i november 2014 skal repareres ytterligere. Selskapene jobber om natten slik at det blir minst mulig sjenanse for beboerne pa Hvaler. – Dette vil naturlig nok fa konsekvenser ogsa for vare kunder, sier Bjorn Amundsen i Telenor. Derfor har de valgt a oke beredskapen i forbindelse med stromutfallet. Her er meldingen fra Telenor til kundene pa Hvaler: –For fastnettet vil analog telefoni vaere i orden sa lenge sentralen er oppe under nedetiden. Dersom det er kunder som har ISDN med et apparat som er tilkoblet strom vil fastnettet ikke fungere. Dette gjelder de fleste ISDN abonnentene, men noen telefoner har nodstrom innebygget i apparatet. Er sentralen oppe vil derfor disse virke. Totalt vil droye 400 enkeltabonnenter kunne bli berort av utfall denne natten for fastnettdelen. Nar det gjelder mobilnettet har vi og vil utfore test av alle batterier pa vare basestasjoner pa Hvaler. Var plan er a sette ut aggregater for a sikre kontinuerlig drift i Skjaerhalden-omradet og Kirkeoy . Dermed vil ogsa kommuneadministrasjon vaere sikret kommunikasjon fra mobil under stromutkoblingen. Oppstar en krisesituasjon hvor du ma ringe, skal det derfor virke disse stedene». – Det er videre viktig at folk vet at de andre basestasjonene vil ga ned nar batteriene er tomme . Basestasjonene har batteri for en gangtid alt fra 30 minutter til fem timer avhengig av trafikk pa basestasjonen, sier Amundsen.
