Luxembourg Terre Rouge (visited 10/2017)

Recommended Posts

In the silos of the blast furnace Terre Rouge, iron ore and lime was stored, mixed and then burned in the blast furnaces. The gases were used to power the nearby thermal power plant "Central Thermique", which was built in 1951 and closed in 1997. The power plant is currently being demolished.

 

Visited with @The_Raw, @extreme_ironing & @Maniac.

Nice report and beautiful pictures! Much better than my snaps oft that place... :D

I was there in September, and I think Centrale Thermique was already completely gone if I'm not mistaken :(

      I want to tell a funny story that happened recently in Luxembourg city.
      We decided to climb a crane. When we were at the top, someone spotted us and apparently called police, but we left before they arrived. 
      What happened further. We cleaned our clothes, and after a while decided to go home, but we were too lazy to walk around the district and just passed by the construction site again. I noticed a police car next to the entrance. While driving away, they saw us, stopped and started asking:
      - Were that you who just climbed a crane here?
      - No. That's not us.
      - Are you sure?
      - Yes, we are. 
       
      After that they let us go)))
      I'd like to write a positive feedback on the work of our police, really)

      A large abandoned iron mine with miles of tunnels and several levels. We've been here 3 times and still not seen a fraction of it. Yet we walked 20 Km in there. There should be some big vehicles in there but only found some tracks. But we found  a lot of little things like old miner boot with real nails in the soles,a small horse shoe and imprints of horseshoe's and miner boots. From some places it took more 1.5 Hr just to get to the only entry. And unfortunately at the last visit we saw that effort are been made to seal the entry up. A big wire mesh was placed, a wheelbarrow and some mounting materials were present there but no workers. I think it was raining to hard that day.. Probably  the entry is closed now.
      But sure fun to explore there an been off the grid for some hours.
