Finns try to stop wind farms affecting TV, mobile reception  

Credit:  Wednesday 30 September 2015 | www.telecompaper.com ~~

The Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (Ficora) said it is cooperating with energy and telecommunications operators to counter the adverse effects of wind power parks on television reception, mobile networks, radio links and radars. The aim is to resolve the problems by agreeing on the division of responsibilities and, thus, to avoid introducing new legislation.

Ficora has established a working group consisting of companies and organisations in the energy sector, telecommunications operators, as well as other authorities. The purpose is to develop a common understanding of the amount and extent of the problems caused by wind power, and to find flexible approaches that do not require new legislation.

The working group is seeking to develop a model for cooperation between wind power companies, TV and mobile operators, and users of radio systems, for those cases when wind turbines cause interference to radio systems. The term for the working group ends on 30 April 2016 and the final report will be delivered by that date.
