Hydroelectric Power plant SFU

An old hydroelectric power plant
Hidden in the trees, a few dozen to a long path in the woods, I could never find this plant without the help of an old man who protect a nearby castle … The use of this plant is unknown, I thought to supply military camp during World War II, but the facilities are dated to the late 50s. It can be used for a nearby farm, or a missing from the factory.
Protected by its location, it has suffered little damage, except the windows stolen, and flooding due to clogged water retention

When I got there, disappointment, I see the dam, but do not see how this will produce electricity! Dirt has replaced water, doors gave way under the pressure, I cross to find the stairs leading down under restraint to discover what I wanted.

May 2013, visited with LarzzA very hot early summer’s day; somewhere in the industrial depths of Belgium. The furnace towers above us as we stake out the gate and notice way too much activity! This won’t be an easy task… We decide to check the back o…

The abandoned chemical factory of Rüdersdorf (actually in Tasdorf) was once part of VEB Chemiewerk Coswig, responsible mainly for the production of the animal feed Rükana and other phosphates used for farming.
It started life in 1899 as a cement factory operated by C.O.Wegener, which allegedly made the cement in “an ultra-modern yet highly dangerous” kiln oven. The huge Preußag concern (now the TUI travel agent) took over in 1939, producing bauxite vital for the Nazis’ war effort from 1944.
The Russians dismantled the plant after the war, but it found a new lease of life in 1950 when the VEB Glühphosphatwerk Rüdersdorf was formed to make the afore-mentioned phosphates. Two more kilns were added in 1972, and the factory came under control of the Piesteritz-based VEB Kombinat Agrochemie (agrochemicals) at the end of the 1970s.
German reunification spelled the end for VEB Chemiewerk Coswig, however, as it did for so many East German enterprises, with dwindling sales and dodgy dealings from investors preceding the inevitable. The factory made its last pig’s dinner before the gates were permanently closed in 1999.
Not much in the way of detail inside any of the buildings but externally it was pretty cool and the sunset helped.
