Geocache Description:

Pirttikoski cache is one of hydroelectric power series by rometku

All caches in this series are located near some hydroelectric power plant. Don’t worry these are NOT too close a plant nor any dangerous instruments and you are quite safe when looking for these caches.

Instructions to cache site:
Turn from road 944 to Voimalaistostie road then go by Tunnelitie road all the way to dam area, then over the dam (which is also a bridge) and finally to Linkkitie road. Drive the Linkkitie road approximately 100 meters and turn left, go an another 50 meters and you should see a unofficial car park area. Now you are quite close to the cache.

There is signs alongside the Tunnelitie road and dam that says, “you drive with your own risk”, “falling rocks”… etc. So you have been warned!

Cache is located in dry land and you do NOT have to go close the dam nor close to any electricity polls or other dangerous objects to find it.

Basic information of Pirttikoski hydropower plant:
City were located at: Rovaniemi
Building years: 1956-59
Max Power: 110 MW
Produced energy in one year: 551 GWh

This one is my favourite on this series. There is view to dam area from the place where cache is hidden and the drive to the cache is quite exiting I do recommend this one.
