Oygarden STP – Norway’s Latest STP Buried in a Mountain

Norway’s west coast comprises of more than 300 islands that lie within the municipality of Fjell. With the nearby city of Bergen now more accessible via new transport infrastructure, the Fjell region has been experiencing rapid population growth.
