An old coal thermoelectric power plant that is put out of service some time ago.To gain access to this plant took some careful planning because there is some security, camera and some fancy infra red fences.. And that is only one of the obstacles. But then you can enjoy this plant with the 3 generators, including the blue one,where this plant got his name. some parts were looking quite old .The light conditions where sometimes difficult. I think we didn't saw everything and could take some more pictures but all three of us had the feeling that it was time to leave. Not sure if the security also making rounds inside this plant. But we got out this plant unseen. We looked a bit like black Pete. because of all the coal dust laying arround.

Nice pics there. Looks like the place has been completely powered down now? Looks good in daylight.

Thanks for the responses. I do appreciate that. And the power plant has parts from late 50's till the 70's. We enjoyed the time there.
