a name? we get this group on a traditional cake from southern germany. a few ice cubes in a glass might seem simple enough, but what do you do if you need a big block of ice? well, that is where an ice vendor from norway can come in handy. 17 years ago, thomas older began harvesting clear ice from a frozen lake. well now, his ice is in hot demand all over the world. time is of the essence in this business, as we find out from thomas, who knows exactly how to break the ice for his customers. ah. busy busy this is thomas who did room you could call him an ice cold norwegian business man. busy he sells frozen water to build ice. hotels were to carve wintery sculptures and he has
1:04 am
a special relationship with ice. that doesn't leave him cold. it's melt in the summertime, it melt when it gets hot, it melt. if you bring it inside an as a business point of view, it's very good because if the customers is happy for what they got on want to have it again, that all of us have to buy over and over again because his melts and go back to the nature us walter, blue norway has vast landscapes, clean water, and harsh winters. so the raw material he needs is right at his doorstep. we are on the lake. yeah. very close to my eyes, farm, just one hour east or, or slow. and in this area, it's normally not so much snow, but it's still normally cold, so it's gives clear and good ice quality. after nature has taken its course, he brings in the big gun. he saw the ice into even sized flocks.
1:05 am
the ice can even bear the weight to heavy equipment using his tractor, he cuts long even tracks in the frozen lake. he must not lose any time, but the blocks of ice fries again quickly. the biggest challenge is to stay on the ice on that honored ice. or i will say it's important to try to have 90 degrees angles every cut because then it's easier when you use it later. we don't know if it going to be love, big ice wall of stack of big pile ice to make a big ice filter. ice sculptures and hotels may be relatively new. but ice harvesting dates back centuries. the industrial each lead to a boom in the sector, norway remain to top export or vice right up to the 1960s. and companies and private households weren't the only ones buying. there were had some high quality i

a weight. and it's also soft. he stories some 400 to 500 tons of ice on his ice farm. in order could come in any time. sometimes his expertise is also called ford. he's already supplied ice to major hollywood film productions. it's a lot of different things that i and never had a billeted to see if i hadn't been working with snow and ice. so that's the best part to it. but personally, i think i'm more happy when i am on the beach with 30 degrees sa sunshine, burning out over my head instead o, stay in the shadows and minus 10 or minus 20 minus soda degrees. sounds like great vacation plants as long as he doesn't have to put them on ice to take on more exciting jobs in the cold. busy busy for many soccer fans around the
