History: This cokes facory was founded in 1924 by the belgium steel company cockerill, this factory made cokes for the nearby steel mill, also known as HFB. In 1994 there was an accident in this factory, this accident killed 7 workers. In 2010 the nearby blast furnace was mothballed which caused the cokes factory to be closed down. However in 2014 the steel mill was supposed to be reopened again, after these plans were announced the cokes factory was expanded, however after only 6 months the complete production for steel in that area was closed down permanently, which meant that it was abandoned after 80 years of producing cokes for the steel industry in Liege. Photos: I also made a documentary of this place (It is in dutch, but it has subtitels) Thanks for reading!
