The foghorn was operated from the lighthouse’s technical building

Electricity was brought to Suurupi in the 1960s. But back then, it wasn’t very reliable. Often during stormy and dark nights, batteries and diesel generators had to be used to be able to indicate a safe passage to ships. There were three diesel generators, since lighthouse keeper had to be sure that one of them would work when needed.
