A mighty old abandoned paper mill, with its own power plant. Today it’s completely deserted. In the Swedish region of Blekinge, was until 1999 a historic mill in the small town Fridafors. See the gallery of pictures from the mighty construction.
During the 1950s, Fridafors booming. The mill had about 525 employees and everything was hunky-dory. In the late 1960s, a new production record was set with 142 tons of pulp in 24 hours. This was celebrated with coffee and tea in Fridafors people’s house.
Profitability varied until 1999 when the mill was closed and the remaining employees lost their jobs. A company bought the properties for SEK 1. For some reason, a fire breaks out in November the same year. The fire destroys two paper machines that are insured to 16 million.
