The Tokke Hydroelectric Project will involve the construction of a series of dams and tunnels, as well as a new power station.
The high demand for power in Europe has created an opportunity for countries to use their lakes and rivers to generate power. One such project, the Tokke Hydroelectric Project, will involve the construction of a series of dams and tunnels in the upper reaches of the Tokke and Vinje rivers. It will also finance a new power station. The energy generated will be fed into the southeastern grid over a high voltage transmission system; two new sub-stations will be installed and an existing sub-station will be expanded and upgraded to include transformers and switching equipment.
