The Light Arc Furnace – the most important Norwegian invention off all times.

Tinfos plant - an example of infrastructure that was built in conjunction with the industry and social housing.

Foto: Øyvind Wæhle

The housing in Grønnbyen, for working-class families, held a high standard in its time, and was among the first houses to have indoor WC.

Rjukan-Notodden Industrial Heritage is the story of the second industrial revolution, based on hydropower. Rjukan-Notodden is an expression of a new global industry in the early 20th century, an electrochemical industry that produced “Norgesalpeter” (calcium nitrate). The first industrial scale production found place in Notodden in 1905, and contributed to a substantial increase in food production. This solved an international food crisis. In many ways it was to do the impossible - win in an industrial race with competitors that had far greater resources, both professionally and financially. A daring railway project from Notodden to Rjukan was completed in two years. It made it possible to build the world’s largest power plant at Vemork and at Såheim.

From Farmland to Cities in 10 Years

Two townships evolved alongside the rise of Hydro’s industry at Notodden and Rjukan. Skilled architects, engineers, builders and craftsmen were hired. Between 1907 and 1914 Hydro built 340 housing units at the two locations. Both cities received a distinctive architecture.

Admini, the administration building. This is where Sam Eyde had his residence when he was in Notodden.

www.industriarven.no A Unique Status The 5th of July 2015, Rjukan-Notodden Industrial Heritage was inscribed by UNESCO as the 8th heritage site in Norway. The inscription is based on an epochal invention, industrial production of fertilizer for agriculture, using hydropower.

Hiking in Notodden Notodden has many scenic hiking routes just outside the city-centre.

Company Town – Grønnbyen, Villamoen & Admini: The industrial worker, office clerks and engineers, and the entrepreneur. That is how the early 20th century housing situation was organized, almost like steps on a flight of stairs. The working-class was at the bottom, then came the middle-class, and at the top with a view you had the founder, the CEO – the upper class.

A family get-together at Tinnemyra, a stroll to Eikeskar mountain or industrial history at the Tinfos plant – the choice is yours.

A trip around Tinnemyra is enjoyable for all ages.

Tinnemyra

The trail takes you around the Tinnmyra lake. The trail itself is a 2 kilometre long, handicap friendly trail, with lights all around. There are several picnic areas around the lake and in the summertime, it is nice to go for a swim. The lake is excellent for fishing, bathing or just to have a stroll in idyllic surroundings.

Eikeskar Tinos plant – 200 years with industrial-history.

A visit to Eikeskar mountain will give you a scenic view over the city and the Lifjell mountains.

18

Tinfos plant

The Tinfos plant is an important part of the world heritage Rjukan-Notodden, and a place to see if you are in to historical places. Here you will see over 200 years with industrial-history in a scenic area. At Tinfos you will get to see the development from the first pre-industrial society to the first – and second industrial revolution. Here you can see an old paper factory and three old power plants.
