Terre Rouge and the power station, Central Thermique, which supplied electricity to the huge steel plant both now sit abandoned and partially demolished in the large designated industrial area of Luxembourg. Established in the 1870’s from what can gather, this steel producing site was not the first large-scale industrial complex in the area but it grew to become a dominating area of the surrounding landscape spreading over a large area encompassing mining, generation of power and the full production process from iron ore to steel.
Visited with Scott of Darbian Photography, Matt and Andy K of Behind closed doors, the steel plant was the first stop and much to our expectations most of the site had disappeared having been demolished, a large building housing silo’s however remained and provided the opportunity for a few nice shots, especially the upstairs which was covered in red dust. We quickly moved on to the power station only to find that strip out works had begun there and demolition was underway. Still glad we stopped off but the place certainly wasn’t what it used to be. I believe the power station was to be completely demolished and with the speed which they were progressing it is highly likely that it will now be a pile of rubble.
