Fjell is a municipality in the county of Hordaland, Norway. Hordaland is a county in Norway, bordering Sogn og Fjordane, Buskerud, Telemark and Rogaland. ...


The municipality consists of several islands west of Bergen, the major ones being Litle-Sotra, Sotra (the northern part) Bjorøy and Turøy. Due to the construction of the mainland bridge (Sotrabroen) in 1971 and its proximity to Bergen, Norway, the population has grown from less than 7,000 to almost 20,000, and it is presently the Norwegian municipality with the highest growth rate. The result is major traffic jams over the bridge every day. A highway that leads to the town centre of Bergen has reduced the traveling time to only fifteen minutes from the community centre at Straume on Litle-Sotra.

Olav 1951– Fjell - KONGSBERG VÅPENFABRIKK, BERGEN BANK AND DEN NORSKE BANK, POSTBANKEN (2041 words)
This was Fjell's introduction to working for a state-controlled company and his first opportunity to apply the cost-cutting experience and intraorganizational administration he had learned at KV.
Fjell worked to secure a partial merger with the state's direct financial interests—oil industry interests that were owned by the state but managed by Statoil.
While the CEO of Statoil, Fjell served as speaker at the 16th Work Petroleum Congress in Calgary, Canada (June 2000), and as a member of the General Organizing Committee for the Annual European Energy Conference in Bergen, Norway (August–September 2000).
