Note 17 Disputes
From time to time Statnett is involved in minor disputes with landowners, customers and others with regard to the interpretation of signed contracts, statutory obligations, including property tax, discretionary assessments and disagreements related to ordinary operations and building of power lines and cable connections. Disputes of this nature are regarded as part of regular operations.
The contractor to one of Statnett's ICT projects has filed a claim for compensation grounded in increased expenses incurred due to circumstances which they believe Statnett is responsible for. Based on the documentation of the claim, Statnett has made no accounting provisions at this point.
