Quick report as I don't have any historical info.

Fun explore, although got cut a bit short, after being caught, so I need to go back one day to finish it...

 

Secca was really nice. He offered me some coffee and cola, while waiting for the police.

Police was less amused and they didn't wanna believe I was there, on my own, just taking pics.

Ended up being searched, then my bag + car and finally by the policeman destroying my memory card with his pocket knife, handing the remains to the security guard.

Luckily I was shooting on 2 cards simultaneously and I managed to hide 1 of the cards while waiting for police... Having a backup sometimes makes sense. :)

 

Now, on with the shots;

Wow this place is amazing!

 

I'm not sure what the legalities of the police destroying your memory card over there - they certainly wouldn't be allowed to do that over here in the UK. Glad you got away with a backup :thumb

Looks a cool place, shame about security and police though. Personally I would run rather than wait for the police. Can you put an approximate date in the title please? Cheers :)

Thats a lovely set of pics, looks a cool place. Nice work  switching the memory cards, does seem a bit over zealous of them to destroy it  :unfair:

Thanks Guys!! Much appreciated!

 

Agree, destroying of the memory card was way out of line and probably not legal, but at that particular moment I figured;

Memory card = 25 euro. Making fuzz and risk being taken to the station and getting a possible fine for being at this location is just not worth it....

(Especially since I knew I had a backup anyway..)

 

Funny thing as the officer also told me to leave Belgium and go back to NL, once they were done searching everything... Right...

Drove 10 min to my next location instead. :)

 

 

(PS. Apologies for forgetting to add country/date, again... Will remember next time. :) )

Looks great.  Good you was shooting on 2 cards simultaneously. I always do so either, two slots for memory cards are very convenient.

      This was an odd explore, from the front of the building it looked like a standard office block but the inside told a different story.
      First off, some fairly standard looking CNC machines - but the further in we ventured the clearer it became. There was an entire production line left in situ for making alloy wheels!
      Each stage of the build process had its own machining area and the wheels were transported from one area to the next on a huge conveyor system - everything from milling, shot blasting, heat treatment, lacquering and pressure testing. Many of the machines had lot numbers attached and it was my guess that it wouldn't be long before everything including an immaculate rack of machine tools were auctioned off.
      We gradually made our way to the front of the building, where the only notable room was a small laboratory - still half equipped. An enjoyable explore and a good end to the day.
      Visited with Jaff Fox and thanks to H for his info.














      This sign, roughly translated means: food and drink are strictly prohibited in the lacquer plant.

      visited with oliver GT and rustproofhawk ...
      After trying to see as much of Belgium as we could in four days, we all decided that im power station would be high on the list . The size of this place is immense and i found myself putting my tripod down wondering round and absorbing as much of the place as possible ive been back twice to this site and shots are from all three trips my apologies for not being able to find any history ...
      on with the pics ...
      IM POWER STATION
