Hjartdøla power plant is located in Hjartdal Municipality in Telemark County. The power plant is located 500 metres inside a mountain and was commissioned in 1958.
The main reservoir of Hjartdøla power plant is Lake Breivatn and the plant uses a height of fall of 555 metres. In the Brattfjell-Vindeggen catchment area several reservoirs have been constructed that supply this power plant.
In 2005 a major upgrade and rehabilitation was carried out of both generating units, which are equipped with Pelton turbines.
Through its majority ownership in Skagerak Energi AS, Statkraft is co-owner of this power plant. Skagerak Kraft AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Skagerak Energi, is responsible for daily operations, and manages the licences and obligations in terms of river management and regulating of the watercourse.
