Storlia power plant
Storlia power plant will use a 75-metre height of fall between Lake Bjoreio and Lake Sysenvatn in Eidfjord Municipality.
The Storlia Power Plant will have an installed capacity of 8.5 MW from two horizontal Francis turbines of 6 MW and 2.5 MW respectively. The power plant will be built inside the mountain with an access tunnel from Storlia, on the lower side of National Road 7. The water will come from a new intake in Lake Bjoreio through a new head race tunnel into the power plant. An outlet tunnel will run from the power plant and end up in the existing diversion tunnel between Lake Bjoreio and Lake Sysenvatnet.
Start-up of preparatory work was completed in 2015. Construction is under way and the power plant will be commissioned in the spring of 2020. Remaining work involves tunnels, concrete and the delivery and installation of electro-mechanical equipment.
The work is being carried out by AF Gruppen and Rainpower.
