Exploration #119 Blue power plant (testo italiano a fondo pagina). The blue power plant was part of the huge, now abandoned, Cockerill-Sambre steelworks in Charleroi, Belgium. It was built to replace the old power plant aka Wet Dogs. The site hosted once a blast furnace, a steelworks, a rolling mill, a power station. Many buildings have been demolished, or partially demolished around this site but this power plant was still untouched.

The boilers was fired by a combination of natural gas and waste gas produced by the cokerie. The place offers a lot of photogenic elements thanks to its vintage aspect and lack of vandalism. Overall it has quite a steampunk vibe to it.

This gallery is about the thermal plant only, but if you are curious you can find my exploration of the other areas of the plant: the coal injection plant, the water tower, the cokerie.

Esplorazione #119. Questa centrale elettrica faceva parte di una vasta area industriale in Belgio. Il sito ospitava un’acciaieria e un impianto di coke, entrambi ora abbandonati. I boiler erano alimentati proprio da una combinazione di gas naturale e gas di scarico prodotti dalla cockeria. Il luogo offre molti elementi fotogenici grazie al suo aspetto vintage e all’assenza di atti vandalici. Nel complesso ha un’atmosfera molto steampunk.

E’ possibile vedere le mie foto dell’esplorazione delle altre zone del sito qua: the coal injection plant, the water tower, the cokerie.
