Tapping renewable resources

Power plants were first introduced to the remote town of Narvik in northern Norway over a century ago to keep up with the economic boom that the area was experiencing. In a short period of time, Narvik’s population exploded from 0 to 100,000 as a result of the rising ore industry fuelled by increasing railways connections. From the start, Nordkraft was there, supporting the local community with a reliable energy source – a tradition that has continued until today. Nordkraft is currently the region’s largest supplier of renewable energy, after Norwegian multinational Statkraft, operating wind and hydropower plants along Norway’s 2,650 km coastline.
