Expanded 350-MW Nedre Rossaga hydropower station now operational in Norway

Nedre Rossaga open

Statkraft opened its renovated and expanded 350-MW Nedre Rossaga hydropower station on Oct. 18.

Nedre Rossaga became operational in the 1950s and is located in Nordland, Hemnes municipality, Norway. Refurbishment and expansion began in spring 2012. Total capacity increased to 350 MW from 250 MW and annual generation increased 200 GWh to 2.15 TWh.

Three existing units in the old power station were rehabilitated and three were decommissioned. Voith Hydro was responsible for this rehabilitation.

A new power station was built to contain one 225-MW unit. For this work, Rainpower provided the turbine and valve and Alstom/GE provided the generator.

The project cost about NOK2 billion (US$245.5 million).
