 Cold War Tank turret fortification?

Hei all

About three years ago, during my first visit in Alta I found a emplacement close to the sea, what I think - might or could be, a shelter room for mounting a tank turret on top of it. Because of the modern construction, especially of the ventilation pipe I also think this whole object belongs into the cold war period.

Well, as said I think or guess so. The problem about the whole thing is, when I visited the emplacement again last year, it was gone! Completly taken away and just a hill of lose concret gravel and nothing left to get any further details....

In the book "Tank turret fortifications" from Neil Short it is mentioned, that Norway had during the cold war time (or maybe still has?) several fixed or semi prepared turret fortifications of/or for M24 Chaffee, M8 Greyhound and M20 armoured cars.

So could it be some of of those? Who can help, kows more about it or has seen something like this before?

Thanks for every answer :-)
