Aurland IV (Reppa) is a small power plant located in Aurland Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane County.
The hydropower development in the Aurland Valley is an elegant network of dams, tunnels and power stations. The same water is used several times as it passes through the various power stations on its way from the high mountains to the bottom of the fjord.
Aurland V power plant is located in Njukebotn in the Stonn Valley, gets its water from the western part of the catchment area and has its intake in Lake Reppvatn. The height of fall from Lake Reppvatn is 400 metres, and that drives a horizontal Francis turbine.

The development started in 1980, and the plant was commissioned in 1983.
