The Nørlandselva power plant is located on the east side of Masfjorden. Steep mountain slopes lead the rain down to the valley floor through Meisdalen and Glyvrebotnen before the water flows into Storevatnet. The water is a regulation reservoir for the power plant with a regulation between elevations 132 and 134. The intake at the west end of Storevatnet leads the water into the pipeline that follows the Nørlandselva down to the fjord and the power plant. The waterway is designed as an underground pipeline of about 1800 meters. The power plant is located down by the fjord in Nørland and has an “overshot” Francis turbine with an installed capacity of 4.9 MW.
