RJUKAN VARELAGER

The Rjukan Solarpunk Academy Headquarter - and all associated activities, will be moving into the historic building once housing RJUKAN VARELAGER on the 1st of March 2020.

Placing orders like 6 railway carriages of sardines in one go, and with a daily consumption of two tonnes of flour to feed a growing population hard at work building the city of Rjukan; this store was once upon a time the largest retailer in all of Norway, with a record-breaking 2 million Norwegian Krones being the annual turnover in 1916.

Today Rjukan Varelager is in the ownership of Bjørn and Nina Borcelio, which are in the process of bringing the building back to the original appearance according to Unesco World Heritage standards.
