    ArcelorMittal Schifflange, Luxembourg.

    Im going to apologise for it taking me so long to write this report - Im kinda lazy when it comes to editing. However, if you have read any of my earlier reports you will know myself Bigjobs, drhowser and Gaj UE had an epic euro rally/explore combo trip over the summer and this was one of the amazing places we had the opportunity to visit.

    I visited ArcelorMittal Schifflange in Luxembourg with Bigjobs and drhowser. As ever I hadn't asked what it involved, preferring to stick to my "let me know when we get there so I can't bail" method of exploring. I know Im an explorers nightmare - but it works for me and I have awesomely good friends who accept that I prefer not knowing the ins and outs but know that when it comes to it, I will get on with it and proper enjoy myself.

    ArcelorMittal Schifflange, Luxembourg.

    Ok, I don't know much about this place. It's a Steelworks in Luxembourg and it's next to a load of train lines. Although it is well on its way to being demolished it does have some awesomely nice stuff still there.

    I've said previously how much I love pipes n turbines n stuff, but I also adore massive pieces of machinery and this had some amazing bits of kit which my photos do not do justice to! Again a huge thanks goes to Bigjobs who always does a fantastic job of explaining to me what the processes are and what all the bits of machinery would have been used for.

    Standing looking over the production line was quite amazing, trying to imagine how it would have been when in full flow, with those huge crucibles filled with hot molten steel, ready to be poured, sparks flaring and searing heat, to the roar of the machinery repetitively rolling onward. Now I could carry on with images of topless six-pack laden males taking diet coke breaks but I think thats a bit too much so I will give a little history instead!

    Ive nicked this bit of history from Wiki.

    And this bit (lot) from drhowser

    Oh and there are a couple of photos too, enjoy :)
