Odda

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odda

Odda  is a municipality in Hordaland countyNorway. The municipality is located in southeastern Hordaland county, surrounding the southern end of the Sørfjorden.

The administrative centre is the town of Odda, which is also the main commercial and economic centre of the entire Hardanger region. Other villages in the municipality include BotnenEitrheimHåraRøldalSeljestadSkare, and Tyssedal.

The 1,616-square-kilometre (624 sq mi) municipality is the 42nd largest by area out of the 422 municipalities in Norway. Odda is the 150th most populous municipality in Norway with a population of 7,025. The municipality’s population density is 4.8 inhabitants per square kilometre (12/sq mi) and its population has decreased by 1.8% over the last decade.[2]

The new municipality of Odda was established on 1 July 1913 when the southern district of Ullensvangwas separated out to form its own municipality.

Name

The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old “Odda” farm (Old NorseOddi), since the first Odda Church was built there. The name is identical with the word oddi which means “headland”

In 1927, Erling Johnson, working at Odda Smelteverk, invented a process to produce three-component, NPK fertilizers. This process is now known as the Odda process.
