    Central Térmica de Alcúdia

    This ex-coal Power station was the numero uno site on our tedious shopping list whilst over in Mallorca. Funny how things happen but this was probably the most “mehâ€￾ of the buildings we were fortunate to see.

    The plant was the most primo power generator and one of the most important examples of industrial architecture on the Balearic Islands. It was constructed in 1958 according to a design by the Spanish architect Ramón Vázquez Molezún under the watchful eye of the dictator Francisco Franco Bahamonde.

    Running gear and T/G were provided by Metropolitan Vickers although there were spares crates from Belgian favourites ACEC and France’s Creusot & Schneider hanging around in the turbine hall.

    In 1986 The Spangish government commissioned a new Powerplant around 10km away on the other side of the bay. We ate some sandwiches and admired the coal loaders spooning the black fuel into this plant in the hot sunshine at some point whilst looking for a mine and coming across a rubbish dump and some sleepy gringos with their bin lorries.

    Anyhow, back to the Central Termica.

    The plant was closed in 1991/2 and resides within Alcudia’s commercial port zone. Getting onto the site included some sneaking through gardens and catching sight of the lovely views afforded by the beautiful location.

    Some dodging around and getting lost later we climbed the dodgy stairs surrounding the boiler gear to emerge within the deliciously decayed Turbine Hall.

    About a billion pigeons lived here, they were flying from one end of the Turbine hall to the other in big flocks, dislodging bits of concrete ceiling as they went. FLAPPP.

    Here are some photos.

    The whole place smelled of death, poison and solvents. Yum. ​

    Can't really say much apart from "as good as always"

    Cracking photos, and a good amount of pigeons!
