This concrete casemate was added to the fort in 1891. It was was the control room for an electrically operated minefield, which was placed in the main shipping channel to prevent the entrance of enemy vessels into the harbor. Long cables connected the mines to an electrical panel mounted inside. On orders from the observation officers, any number of the powerful mines could be detonated.
