Nore I power plant

Norway / Hydropower / Power plant

Nore I power plant is located in Nore og Uvdal Municipality in Viken County.

  • 1928
    Entered into operation
  • 206 MW
    Installed capacity
  • 1,173.5 GWh
    Annual production

The power plant uses the height of fall between Tunhovdfjorden and the town of Rødberg and has eight generating units with Pelton turbines with double turbine runners. The plant has an installed capacity of 206 MW.

Water from the plant is discharged into Lake Rødbergdammen, where it is collected before being used again in the Nore II power plant. Minimum water discharge from Rødberg Dam is also used in the newer and smaller Rødberg power plant.

Nore I was built to produce power for domestic supply in Eastern Norway. It was commissioned in 1928 and is one of Statkraft's oldest power plants still in operation.

Plans for the plant were drawn by architects Lorentz Harboe Ree and Carl Buch. It was once Norway's largest power plant.

Nore I is considered a heritage building and is proposed to be preserved in protection class II in Statkraft's conservation plant. This includes the penstock, which is now phased out and replaced by a pressure shaft inside the mountain.
