Thought IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d post up a few pics from a trip to Centrale Thermique from last October (apologise as IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure most have seen this place plenty of times already :-). Before my visit I was in two minds whether to visit this place at all, but as it was close to a couple of other locations so though weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d take a look. Must admit I was pleasantly surprised. Yep its pretty tagged and trashed in places but it still has that wow factor just from the scale of the place (and these pipes)! This was the 3rd industrial location of the day so light was fading and my energy levels were pretty low so I did miss a few bits What did interest me about the history of this place was that it ran from the exhaust gases from all the blast furnaces in the area. When the last blast furnace shut down in the area Central Thermique closed the following day.
Finally got a chance to pop out to do some photography after a hectic last few months (happy days)!! One location we visited on a long weekend to Europe was Powerplant-X. Bit of a mysterious name to this place but this seems to be what most people call it. It’s a relatively small part derelict (part live) PowerStation in Luxembourg consisting of a large turbine hall which seems to be partly in use and an older building full of walkways, gantries and pipes. On the small stroll between the two buildings one of our party spends a few seconds too long outside on the external shot and pays a heavy price as he’s busted by security (who then decide to call the police). After a couple of hours of shooting oily pipes and rusty stuff in the second building we finally decided to phone the missing person and lean the full story (he’d been calling my other phone back in the hotel).
Evening all, First post in a while as I usually come back from tour and bounce around from one location to another so never finish a set more or less straight away. I tend to edit as I go and only upload a few everyday. This place was the last stop of the tour before we flew home. Deep out in Luxembourg and following some dodgy co-ords we managed to get here thanks to some help from fellow explorers. It was worth the 80 mile diversion just to get into this place. Not to mention walking through deep forest and in hot afternoon sun the day before. We gave up first time while gathering some info and spent the night close by in the hotel with the plan to do this as the last and 12th stop of the tour. We had over 2 hours left to do this so the three of us systematically went from room to room and revisited bits until we finished just in time to leave and drive the 40 miles to Luxembourg airport. Without giving away any details, I can't really comment on this place as I know no history. Anyway, on with the photos. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 #14 #15 #16 #17 #18 #19 #20 #21 #22 #23 #24 There are a few more to be added via the usual channels but these were the main ones I wanted to share on this particular report.... Thanks for looking in.
