Herva is located at Skålavatnet and uses the water drop from two different reservoirs located 260 and 290 meters, respectively, above the power plant. 
Herva also functions as a pump plant, meaning that it can pump water back into one of the reservoirs. Power is produced using a Francis turbine. After the Herva power plant uses the water in its production, it is sent on to the Skålavatnet and Skagen plants.
