Added this straight onto the map for our next Euro trip as soon as I saw @jST's report pop up. Headed over with @SpiderMonkey for a weekend of Euro powerstationing. This place had some seriously huge turbonnage!

History

Opening in the late 1950s Centrale De Schneider was a coal-fired power station in France. The original configuration two turbines made by Cie Electro-Mecanique (the French subsidiary of Brown Boveri) was expanded in the 1970s with the addition of a Rateau-Schneider generator set, bringing the total capacity up to half a gigawatt. The Electro-Mecanique turbines were retired in the early 1990s and all the associated equipment has since been removed. The power station ceased generation a few years ago when the Rateau-Schneider was also taken offline.

Ha - Nice t-shirt, can I have one?

That last shot is absolutely mint! Couldn't figure out a way behind the big trippy blue wall, assume that's where the boiler gear was? Doesn't look like much has gone on since November, interesting that the other chaps who went were treated to a lit up turbine hall.
