From power station to world heritage site

The story of Vemork is a story of people, machine power, struggle and culture. An industrial adventure with both heroes and the workers who toiled every day in the leading roles.

Experience what was once the world’s largest power station and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the Rjukan-Notodden Industrial Heritage Site. Norway would never have been the same without it.
