• This photograph shows a power house under construction by Store Norske. The Arctic Coal Company's powerhouse is visible in the background. A new powerhouse was necessary for the mining operation as the original power house suffered from a number of issues including sinking foundations, some unreliable equipment, and water and cooling difficulties. The newer power house still stands today. The original power house remains as ruins.
