Bagn power plant is located in the village Bagn in Valdres and is one of Skagerak Energi’s larger power plants. The river power plant utilizes a fall of approx. 89 meters between Aurdalsfjorden and Bagn. The water is led through a 3.5 km long tunnel from the intake at the dam at the southern end of the fjord. The power plant was completed in 1963 and has been a stable and reliable facility since then. The power plant was significantly upgraded in 2011-2012, with partly new turbines and generators and other equipment.
The contract for the rebuilding of the cooling water system includes purchase of components, pre-fabrication and assembly on site. Pre-fabrication starts Jan./Feb. 2024, and assembly work will be performed in the spring. Project Manager is Leif Hunskaar.
