Secret submarine base for sale

Secret submarine base for sale

Another relic of the Cold War has just been marketed. Norway sells one of its underground submarine bases for $ 17.5 million. The base, located near the town of Tromso, near the E8 highway, is the former Olavsvern naval base, which is a tunnel dug in the mountain at the water level at the mouth of the fjord (one of the many deep-water canals that give the coast of Norway such a rugged look). The tunnel is able to accommodate small warships or a submarine and has 25000 square meters of underground space. In addition to the main there are several tunnels, most of them are dry. The aboveground facilities contain 13500 square meters of living space.

The age of the base is about half a century, and its construction has cost several hundred million dollars. The base has not been used by anyone since the military left it ten years ago. Wanted an adventurous and wealthy buyer ...

    Well, throw off the whole site and forum, and buy a base? Only the technical condition must be inspected. And the buildings near the base seem to inspire confidence. Nothing is plundered, not broken.

      Exactly, it was in Balaclava, but here it is. Nothing is stolen and not developed, the cameras are means they monitor its condition. And the Balaclava is plundered, everything that can be cut into scrap metal.

    Some kind of oligarch will definitely buy. A good place to survive all sorts of crises (not economic). I would buy.

    Does Russia have the opportunity to purchase this object? An interesting strategic location, but it would not hurt to bring down the price a bit, then good

    Illiquid, to whom and why he needs a mind I can’t fit. They built everything and a lot in the Cold War, and now it’s expensive to maintain.
    Who will invest, if he knows that the object will be taken from him, if that.
