Uvdal II power plant is located just outside the town of Rødberg in Nore og Uvdal Municipality, Buskerud County.
The power plant, which was begun in 1963 and commissioned in the autumn of 1966, uses a height of fall of 196 metres from Fønnebøfjord in the Uv Valley and down to Norefjorden below Rødberg. The power plant has two generating units equipped with vertical Francis turbines, and an installed capacity of 44 MW.
The power station is located inside the mountain and utilizes mainly operating water that has already produced energy on its way through Uvdal I power plant higher up in the watercourse.
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.
