|Project Details||The combined kWh per year for the entire Vindelälven hydro power project was estimated to 2,8 billion (1). |
The reservoir by the lake Gautojaure would be 46 m above the average water level of the lake and would place a populated river valley under water. The capacity of the reservoir would be 1 300 million m3. The lakes Tjulträsken and Granselet would be dammed 17 m and 24 m respectively. The reservoir of Granselet would have the capacity of 450 million m3 while the Tjulträsken reservoir would have a capacity of 165 million m3.
The lake Storvindeln would become a 230 million m3 reservoir. (1)
