Old enough to know better
Myself, Host and Sammydoublewammy hit the road again for a weekend of some European Industry, and thought we'd check out this nice little powerplant at HF6 Blast Furnace, Some of the site is being demo'd so we just did the powerplant as the rest is pretty much like all the other blast furnaces in the area.
Enjoyed this one.
The blast furnace Charleroi was used for smelting iron ore, and was the major technique used for the production of steel at the time. The iron and steel produced at HF6 was mainly used for car production, an industry that almost collapsed in 2008. Production at the steel works was halted and the plant placed on standby. The facility was sold to another company, however production was never restarted and in 2012 the site was closed down after a failed merger.
