Hydropark is located by Lake Heddal in Notodden, Norway. This was the site of one birthplace of the 2nd Industrial Revolution, with Norsk Hydro factories powered by clean hydroelectric energy.
Now, the Hydropark complex is the headquarters for the Wild Telemark. Our future plans include development of a full-fledged film studio based on Virtual Studio studio technology.
Our goal is to use this technology to provide services to film productions, photography work, medical sector, training (military, fire, and police department, e.g.) and digital asset licensing.
The complex also provides different location possibilities for film, some of which are profiled in the slideshow above.
Contact us for a tour of the facilities.
