Clemens Kraft and Energi Teknikk has signed an agreement for the construction of Tokagjelet power plant in Norheimsund, Norway. The contract isn’t just the biggest Energi Teknikk has ever won, it also represents a first as total supplier of a small hydro power plant.
“To Tokagjelet we will supply the entire power plant. This means that we will deliver the intake structure, the tunnelled waterway, the power station, and off course the turbine equipment”, says Arild Klette Steinsvik, CEO of Energi Teknikk.
Energi Teknikk will construct the new power plant in partnership with local constructor Hardanger Maskin. Steinsvik believes that the combination of Energi Teknikk’s competence within turbine technology, and Hardanger Maskin’s expertise on tunnel drilling machines, was decisive in the contract award. The project starts at once, and construction time is estimated to 28 months.
