Landsnet’s activities Landsnet’s staff came under some considerable pressure during the year because of increasing load on the grid and thereby increased operational risks. Heavy weather and faults put their mark on our activities right from the start of the year until Easter, and again towards to the end of the year. Various research and preparations for the connection of new customers continued apace. Much time was spent on routine maintenance and technological development, the preparation of the annual Grid Plan and its environmental impact assessment and the EIA scoping document for the Sprengisandur Line, the last of which was submitted to the National Planning Agency. IT and software development are becoming ever more important aspects of our activities. The extensive policy formulation exercise launched at the beginning of the year also added to our staff’s already busy schedule.
