The hall was named after Emanuel Nobel, one of the founders of the historic submarine shipyard. This side of the building housed the foundry for non-ferrous metals. The large hall of the foundry, which is now the PROTO discovery factory, used to be the shipyard’s assembly workshop. For detailed information, please visit their website.
