Power Plant XL
( East Flanders )
Opened in the 1960's
Once Belgium’s largest thermal power station.
It opened in the 1960s with two turbines, and was subsequently expanded as demand for power grew, until the 1990s when the vast turbine hall housed six sets of turbines.
Despite attempts to increase efficiency by the addition of modern heat-recovery techniques, ultimately the plant became unable to provide a sustainable future, and it closed down in 2012. It is currently being decommissioned.
