The vanities of man.......

In the 1980`s two experimental wavepower plants was built in Toftestallen in Øygarden,
west of Bergen.The ocean would soon show it`s real power and during a heavy storm in -92
the two power installations were smashed by the sea.Today only rubble and concrete ruins
remains of the bold experiment.There is no winning over nature.....
