Bardufoss power plant

Norway / Hydropower / Power plant

Bardufoss power plant is located at Bardufossen in Målselv Municipality in Troms and Finnmark County.

  • 1953
    Entered into operation
  • 44 MW
    Installed Capacity
  • 273.6 GWh
    Annual production

The run-of-river power plant uses a height of fall of 53 metres in the Barduelva River. A concrete dam with two flood gates is used to regulate the reservoir a maximum of five metres. Two Francis turbines are installed in the plant.

Innset and Straumsmo power plants are located in the upper part of the Bardu River and use Lake Altevatn as a reservoir, so the running of Bardufoss power plant must be coordinated with the operation of these two upstream plants.

Bardufoss power plant was originally owned by Troms Kraft, but reverted to state ownership and was taken over by Statkraft in 2012.
