|Skogfoss hydroelectric station|
|Location||Skogfoss in Sør-Varanger, Finnmark
|Dam and spillways|
|Total capacity||2,584 million m³|
The power station, which is owned by Pasvik Kraft, a subsidiary of Varanger Kraft, makes use of a 20 metre fall in the river. Although the power station is located on a river, Lake Inari in Finland is regulated as storage for all of the power stations in the drainage basin. The river is dammed at the power station, which also has a small reservoir in Langvannet. Following the damming, the water level rose to a level of 9 metres and many cabins had to be vacated. A Sami grave site also had to be moved following the regulation.
Parts of the dam pass over the Russian border.
