Power Station near Trollstigen

Another re-edit of some old photos.

Power station somewhere between Ålesund & Trollstigen.

A power station, also referred to as a power plant or powerhouse and sometimes generating station or generating plant, is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power. Most power stations contain one or more generators, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power. The relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor creates an electrical current. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas to generate electricity. Others use nuclear power, but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar, wind, wave and hydroelectric.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_station

Hydroelectricity is electricity produced from hydropower. In 2015 hydropower generated 16.6% of the world’s total electricity and 70% of all renewable electricity,[1] and was expected to increase about 3.1% each year for the next 25 years. – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroelectricity

  1. These are beautiful photos Max. About 50% of NZ’s electricity is hydro so our country is dotted with power stations, though most are huge and much more industrial-looking than the one you show. I think I prefer the look of yours.

  2. Our river was a hydro generating river for all the original mills and factories in the U.S. Now that these plants are gone and the river has been mostly cleaned up, some of these have become generators for nuclear power, but mostly they are trying to remove as many dams as they can to let the river run more freely.

    I love how you captures the water’s movement. I’m always trying to get that effect, but I seem to get more of a stopped-in-mid-splash effect. I have to figure out what setting I need. Beautiful shots!!

  3. These photos have such a magical quality to them. If I think about it, hydroelectricity, which we largely take for granted or seldom think about, is very magical as well!
