History This factory was opened in 1900 and made cardboard out of straw, in that time this product was very popular so 8 years later the made another factory next to the other one. In 1968 the factory closed due to competition from abroad, after the factory was closed it was sold off to a men who repaired and sold off machines. The new owner only did nothing about maintenance of the old factory so the factory complex decayed rapidly. in 2005 the original factory was demolished and the other factory was luckily protected as a monument. Later in 2009 the restoration began on the still standing factory. 6 years later the company who began with the restoration began to have financial troubles so the factory was abandoned again. After being abandoned for 1 year the factory was bought on a auction for an incredible low price, after that the restoration was back on track again. Explore We went on a Sunday so the workers waren't working on the building. When we got there, there was a door opened so we could enter the beautiful old factory building. The highlight of the building was the old Turbine and the old ovens. Hope you enjoyed my post!
Finally back.. Was out for a few month due to some unfortunate events and haven't had much time till now to do cool things. Anyway, finally finding some time again, so started to work on the loads of pics i still have lying around and doing some new explores as well. The pics below are from (a part of) an enormous steel & chemical plant and this building in particular was used for the production of Cyanamid & Calcium Carbide. Most of the factory was build in 1906 and was operational until 2003.. The majority of the buildings have been demolished by now, but the remaining bits are either re-purposed or preserved as national heritage. This one in particular was quite interesting, as it contains 325 big steel ovens and is officially labelled as heritage... Pretty impressive factory, as well as stunning surroundings, as it's located somewhere in a beautiful fjord... Lighting conditions were terrible. Very harsh sunlight outside and very little light inside.. On top of that, it was really rather dirty and tricky to walk in some bits.. (thick layers of very slippery chemicals everywhere on the floors, especially in the basement.. ) Anyway, not my best set, but it was still a fun explore. Ok, on with the shots: 1# 2# 3# 4# 5# 6# 7# 8# 9# 10# 11# 12# 13# 14# 15# Cheers for looking!
