Special Job
My Valmet 6400 and I have done many different jobs for a new
power station in Riksheimdalen in Sykkylven. 14 days ago I
was up in the mountain, which was covered with fresh snow.
Re: Special Job
I had to take away some "forgotten" shuttering under the
pipeline for a power station. This is the entrance to the
tunnel and the mountain Synnavindsnipa in the background.
Re: Special Job
This tunnel was built in the 1930s to regulate the level of
water in a lake a bit further up in the mountain. Now this
pipeline goes 3000 meters down to a new power station about
300 meters above sea level.
I have heard a history about the man who set fire to the
last explosive charge when they built this tunnel. Since
money was thight, they could not afford a long enough fuse
so the man was blown out of the tunnel, because he could not
run fast enough to get out before it blew off.
Re: Special Job
Here is the mountain "Skopshorn" (1226 m) seen from the
tunnel entrance.
Re: Special Job
View to "Keipen" (1298 m). You can see the hut built for
workers on a rehabilitation in the 60s.

"Synnavindsnipa" in the background.
Re: Special Job
Aren't you scared for holes or something?
Or that you can't stop and slide the hill off?
Re: Special Job
There is a small narrow road up along with the pipeline. But
I became snowblind so I had to walk on the road so I could
see where the road was somtimes.
I had to put cains on all weels before went up.
Re: Special Job

Re: Special Job
Looks pretty scary in places. I would want to have some long
dark colored poles along the side of the road to see the
Re: Special Job
Thanks for your comments. I agree with you Redpainter, there
should have been some black poles along the road. It's
impossible to see the road when there is no contrasts and
everything is white.
