  • Short term potential (<6 months) 1 MW
  • Mid term potential (18 – 24 months) 10 MW
  • Long term potential (36 – 60 months) 100 MW*
  • Extra long term potential (60> months) 300 MW**
  • Grid 132 kV passing by site, 320 kV 13 km from site
  • Local hydro production capacity From Rendalen/ south 100 MW, from Savalen/north 62 MW (the latter only partly controlled by Nordavind/ Eidsiva)

*New substation 300-132 kV at Rendalen power plant will improve capacity (2026). Planned transformer 250 MVA.

**Necessary 300 kV line/cable to the desired location. Estimated time 5 – 10 years (investigate + implement).
