Husdalsvannet and a dam

In a former posting to this Blog, I mentioned an old factory in Bjørsvik by Osterfjorden which has been both a mill, a sardine factory and is now engaged in the salmon business. What I did not mention was that this factory has it own hydro-electric plant. It has its own lake (Husdalsvannet - seen above) from which it gets it water supply. The dam shown in the other picture is at the end of the lake and is used for the regulation of the system. As you can see, not all dams have to be gigantic structures to be useful.

Small can still be beautiful.
