ÅF is to renovate the electrical and control equipment of two hydropower plants on the Lagan River in Sweden.

The assignment is an end-to-end project commissioned by Norwegian utility Statkraft in which ÅF will build a new control room for the Knäred Upper and Knäred Lower power plants.

The new equipment will be built in parallel with the old in order to minimise downtime, and ÅF will be responsible for the entire chain, from electrical design and programming of control systems to electrical installation and start-up.

The project is to start immediately and is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
