The photo shows the primary area as well as some of the additional area that needed to be used to stabilise the site. The additional area will be reseeded and later replanted such that it can be returned to nature. Activities summer 2020 in Skibotn relates to installing a simple fence around the primary area and routing/installing power to the site. The main buildings will either be built late autumn or in spring 2021. The radar system parts will be installed next summer and autumn.
