The power plant of Pärus Fors has got its name after the village of Perus (earlier Pärus). Two dams from the 1910’s dam up the water flow in front of Storholmen. They lead the water into the opening of the channel and forward to the turbine from which the power is transmitted with a belt to the ”heart” of the power plant, the generator that makes ecological electricity.
The power plant was one of the first plant in Finland that already in the year 1918 started to produce electricity with a turbine driven generator and today it is one of the last power plants still in use. Inside the power plant you can see how the electricity is being produced which is a really powerful sight.
