Tinfos AS, in cooperation with the local landowners, are planning to develop a small power plant in Bjørgelva, watercourse number 193.4 in Sørreisa municipality, Troms county.

Bjørgelva power plant will utilize a gross drop height of 232 m in Bjørgelva with intake on quay 240 and drainage at booth 8. The precipitation field for planned intake to Bjørgelva power plant amounts to 11 km2 and the mean water flow is calculated to 620 l / s. The planned minimum water flow will be 70 l / s and the installed power will be 2.5 MW, with maximum operating water flow amounting to 1230 l / s. An annual average production of 7.8 GWh is expected, which gives a development price of SEK 2.94 / kWh. The waterway will consist of 1900 m with ductile cast iron pipes with a diameter of about 800 mm. Pipeline will be buried.
