Need A Secret Norwegian Submarine Base?

Looking for somewhere to store your submarine? The Royal Norwegian Navy has put up a secret, mountainside submarine base for sale…  Construction of the Olavsvern Naval Base, just outside the city of Tromso, took more than thirty years, with construction starting in 1964 and not finishing until after 1994.  Listed for $17.5 million, Olavsvern Naval Base comes complete with a submarine dry dock, a tunnel system, an emergency power system, 145,000 square feet of surface buildings, and a 27,000-square-foot “alpine resort.”  Despite the relatively cut price cost of the base, deep pockets will be needed to meet the base’s rumored annual electricity bill of more than $1million.
