The glacial meltwater is the basis of an industrial enterprise in Glomfjord just north of Ørsnes. Norsk Hydro has produced zinc, aluminium, fertilizer and solar panels here. They extracted riches from nature, but also gave back to the people, e.g. chairlifts, swimming pools and tennis courts. The industrial group and this village were a state within the state, and the state only assumed social responsibility in Glomfjord in 1982.
