Construction start for the 5 MW small hydro power plant Geitåni

The construction management will be performed by Captiva on behalf of the project owner Aventron. The plant will be operational in mid-2018 with an estimated annual production of 15 GWh.

Geitåni is located in Voss municipality in Hordaland County, on the west coast of Norway, close to the city of Bergen. Aventron acquired the project rights from the Swiss utility Alpiq in 2016, but the project was originally developed by the project developer Scanergy.

The chosen contracting structure is a multi-contract setup, with Captiva acting as construction manager. The civil works will be performed by the local contractor Jordalen Entreprenør AS. The other main suppliers are the Norwegian companies Energi Teknikk supplying the electromechanical equipment and Brødrene Dahl for the penstock. The construction will be finished during the summer of 2018.

Once the plant is operational Captiva Asset Management will perform the technical and commercial management on behalf of Aventron.
