Skogfoss power station is a hydro electric dam near Skogfoss in Sør-Varanger, Finnmark on the Paatsjoki river.
The power station, which is owned by Pasvik Kraft, a subsidiary of Varanger Kraft, makes use of a 20 meter 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 meters and many cabins had to be vacated. A Sami grave site also had to be moved following the regulation.
Parts of the dam passes over the Russian border.
There are two installed Kaplan turbines producing a total of 60 Megawatts. The mean yearly production of the dam is 358 Gigawatt hours.
