The first study trip of the Methodical centre of Industrial Heritage took place from 2nd May to 10th May 2015. The aim of the trip was to visit technical monuments in Norway (Rogaland, Hordaland and Telemark). This excursion focused on monuments in mining, energetics, chemical industry, metallurgy, and transport.



(Ostrava, 5th May 2015)

The first study trip of Methodical centre of Industrial Heritage prepared by the Norwegian partner (Riksantikvaren) took place from 2nd May to 10th May 2015. The trip was realized within the framework of Industrial Heritage project – exchange of experience, documentation and industrial heritage evaluation.

On the 750 km long route, from Stavanger to Oslo, the attention of the conservationist was focused on industrial heritage in the key industries of Norwegian economy with special attention to monuments whose importance transcend regional character (being protected by law or figuring on the UNESCO World Heritage List).

The study trip programme focused on extraction of raw material, energetics, chemical industry, metallurgy and transport.  In the Norwegian Oil Museum in Stavanger the Methodical centre staff had the opportunity to get acquainted with the method of documentation, evaluation and presentation of the development and current state of technology and technical appliances  used for oil extraction on the see (oil platforms, etc.).

Since water power was the key element used to generate electrical energy necessary for the development of Norwegian industry in the early 20th century, the study trip programme focused in majority on hydroelectric power plants. Power plants in operation as well as the already closed once in Sauda, Suldal, Tyssedal, Rjukan and Notodden document different approaches of preservation, new usage, renovation and presentation of industrial heritage. The intention to use electric energy in the place of its production has led to build several metallurgical, chemical and processing operations in the immediate vicinity of the power plants. Some of them are still in operation (smelting plants in Sauda and Tyssedal), others have been undergoing a gradual conversion for a broad spectrum of new usage (chemical plant in Odda, Rjukan and Notodden). The rapid industrial development in sparsely inhabited and hardly accessible areas resulted in planting new industrial towns (Sauda, Tyssedal, Rjukan), in the development of transport and building new connections (roads, railways).  Close to Rjukan, a unique railway ferry was implemented to connect the two shores of Lake Tinnsjøen.

Among other newly used facilities belongs museum shop in Tyssedal (former registration office of the aluminium factory, currently a factory for titanium processing and iron smelting), archive in Odda (in one of the buildings of the former chemical plant for calcium carbide production currently undergoing a process of conversion) and in Notodden (former paper mill). Last but not least, it was crucial for the project participants to continue dialogue about preparation of the publication and the travelling exhibition. All the study trip aims were achieved.
