    This power station has been supplied with some steroids at some point, it's one of Germany's "Mega" power stations with the main turbine hall consisting of 14 turbines producing a peak power of 3520mw. I'm certainly glad i visited here and was worth the 1200miles driven.

    Visited with CmdrCord​

    When all 5 operating blocks were running this fired power plant was the largest in Europe with 15 cooling towers. 3 of the halls/blocks are still running as the new areas of the site are still live however the part we were here to see is the decommissioned block housing the 14 turbines.

    The shear length of the turbine hall is something that needs to be seen, it spans across 2 buildings and has a length of 600metres and takes a good 10-15 minutes to walk from end to end without stopping.

    The plant is slowly been taken apart, 3 of the chimneys at the site have been demolished (the last in 2012) along with the Ash removal and flues, the massive turbine hall remains albeit with less machinery inside.

    A bit of history and info:

    Some pictures:



    There were 4 of these control rooms, each controlling a different set of turbines.



    Most of the turbines have been dismantled or are in the process.



    One of the intact turbines.


    From one of the 3 remaining cranes you can see the shear size of the place.



    Conveyor system which fed lignite to the boilers


    Turbines and the covers removed for scrap/recycling.


    Inside the boiler buildings.

    Thanks for looking​
