The consent covers the conversion to a new mode of operation for the Eldfisk 2/7 Bravo facility and comprises three main elements:
- Technical modifications in order to permit remote operation
- Organisational adjustments, procedural updates and training
- Planning and execution of maintenance by means of periodic campaigns
During campaign periods, operating and maintenance personnel will live on Eldfisk 2/7 Bravo. Outside of campaigns, the facility will normally be unmanned. During periods without permanent manning, the facility will be controlled from Eldfisk 2/7 S, otherwise, when manned, Eldfisk 2/7 Bravo will be controlled locally.
