Large power station with guided tours for groups on request.
One of the largest power stations in Northern Europe which, with its 4 turbines, generates approximately 440 00 kW by harnessing the 394 m drop from the Vinjevatnet lake to Bandak.
The first aggregate in Tokke was put into operation in 1961. The water is run in a 17 kilometer long tunnel from Vinjevatn to the outlet of Bandak. The second, third and fourth units at Tokke came into operation in 1962.
At that time, Tokke was the largest power plant in Norway. Tokke operations center was also the first in Statkraft where several power plants were controlled from the same location.
With all four units, Tokke power plants have an installed power of 430 MW. All four have Francis turbines.
With its special architecture, location and technical solutions, Tokke power plants have certain objects proposed in Statkraft's protection plan. This applies to the crane building, the portal building and the mentioned operating center.
Guided tours inside the power plant may be arranged for groups on request.
