Projects: Hegset dam
The pilot installation built in 2010 at the Statkraft-owned Hegset dam in the Nea river basin in Norway was a great opportunity to demonstrate and full-scale test the Turbinator technology. In close collaboration with Statkraft, CleanPower here demonstrated renewable energy production from an existing eco-flow release.
Customer and partner in the project was dam owner Statkraft Energi AS.
The pilot installation project received funding from Innovation Norway.
The main parameters of the installation are:
Net head 24 - 28 m (78 to 92 ft)
Water flow 1,2 m3/s (42.4 cfs)
Installed power 280 kW
In 2015, Statkraft built a permanent enclosure for protection during the winters.
