This mini power plant was commissioned in 1980 to make use of a height fall of 70 metres between Lake Hånavatn and Hoppestad east of Blefjell.
The plant was established to produce power from the drop in a 1600-metre-long bypass tunnel connected to Vrenga power plant. The main watercourse for these plants is the Numedalslågen River.
The power plant is equipped with a Francis turbine and has an annual production of 10 GWh.
The installed capacity is 2.3 MW.
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.
