Belgium Diesel Power Plant, Belgium - February 2016

Recommended Posts

This is an abandoned diesel fuelled power station in Belgium with black start capability. Black start means it could be used to restore power in an electric power station at short notice in the event of a major power failure or blackout basically. A few of us had a look at this around a year ago but the only way we were getting in was by abseiling from the roof and we didn't have any gear with us, or the skills more to the point. A year later I returned with @extreme_ironing@Maniac and @Merryprankster and this time we went better prepared. Awesome place, far better than we'd expected. The control room was the highlight but loads of other cool stuff in there too. Comedy moment of the day was when I tried getting the attention of one of the others by shouting 'Ello' in a French accent and Maniac completely freaked out thinking someone was in there looking for us. He still thinks there's someone in there looking for us now! It was ME ok!!! Hats off to him and extreme_ironing for mission impossibling it in and opening the door for the rest of us. Afterwards we rewarded ourselves with some well deserved Belgian brown meat in brown sauce before taking Maniac to get himself electrocuted elsewhere :D

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      A large hospital,build in the 60's and will be demolished soon. It was one of the hospitals where they also removed the lamps and tables in the OK room.
      But still a nice location for a Saturday with a nice staircase.
