WATER POWER

The waterfalls along the Hedströmmen river have powered a great number of water wheels used in forges and blast furnaces.  400 years ago two forges were built one on each side of the waterfall at Karmansbo.   At the turn of the 1900 century there where 4 waterwheels and 4 turbines in use. As you will se one of the wheels is still in working condition.
