The Pamilo Hydroelectric Power Plant (Finnish: Pamilon voimalaitos) is a power station in Eno, Finland that supplies electricity to Finland.[1] It was opened in 1955.[1]

It is notable for being Vattenfall's largest hydroelectric power plant in Finland, with an installed generating capacity of 84 megawatts[2] across three units and produces 256 gigawatt hours per year.[3]

It is fed with water from the Lower-Koita River and Lake Koitere[2] across a catchment area of 6,550 square kilometres. Water is held back in two basins, by two dams; the Pamilo dam and Heinäjoki dam[1]
