About
Time «clocked out» at this unique facility in 1928, after only six short years of operation. In 1922 Skjærstad Herring Oil Factory was small, but quite modern in terms of equipment and technology. The entire production process was driven by a single 17 hp steam engine. Agnar Kaarbø, an engineer, designed the factory and constructed a remarkable system that powered the vat as well as the dryer and press. The steam engine is reputed to be the only one of its kind, and today Skjærstad is Norway's only completely intact factory for extracting herring oil. Skjærstad Herring Oil Factory has national status as a Technical and Industrial Heritage Site. Open by appointment.

The Factory has a nice view as it lays close to the fjord. Not open and no sign telling you about it.
