During the "Cold War" was all municipalities in Sweden required by law to establish a protected center for civil defense. A majority of municipalities followed the law and based centers protected by mountains, or in the form of concrete bunkers, with equivalent protection.

These centers were full of communications equipment such as telephones and radio, and location of housing, emergency power and so on.

Many of these plants were built in the 1950s-1960s. The plant on the images here were completed in the mid 60's, after nearly five years of planning, design and construction work. Here, the idea was that around 100 people (in the plant's two floors) would work to coordinate the community work with civil defense and civil protection in case of war.

But then came the end of "Cold War" and the Warsaw Pact the same case. In the early 90s chose most municipalities to cut down on maintenance of facilities like this.

Some of the plants are sold, other closed forever and some, like this one, largely left to its own fate ... :Not Worthy
