Cette tour en béton armée fût bâtie en 1921 et le site industriel fût définitivement fermé en 2007. Pendant près de 90 ans la tour de .... a refroidi la centrale à charbon . Cette centrale thermique au charbon était responsable d’environ 10% des émissions de CO² du pays. C’est donc pour cela que la décision a été prise de fermer la production. Quant on pense qu’au même moment l’Allemagne a décidé de fermer ses centrales nucléaires pour ouvrir des centrales à charbon… Cela fait froid dans le dos.

Its a nice simple place to visit and I recommend it to everyone wanting a straight forward exploration.

The entrance is easy to find and the fence has so many holes you might as well ignore it.

There are workers around the other nearby buildings however, so keep this in mind. They spotted us but didn't seem to care, especially since while we were walking to the tower we found other explorers who just visited too.

We were done with it after 10 minutes, there is not much to explore but it IS a large tower. It will surprise you if you've never experienced it.e

Paar x bezocht deze loaktie te Charleroi

De koeltoren is heel makkelijk te vinden en te bezoeken .. De powerplant aan de overkant van de sambre is lastiger Niet ondoenlijk Je kunt de toren zo binnenlopen Bij de powerplant moet je uitkijken staan Bouw camera's maar eenmaal binnen is t wel zeer de moeite waard

Deze locatie is een prachtige plek en vooral om mooie foto's te maken. Dit is ook zeker een aanrader. Zodra je binnen staat in het midden van de koeltoren voel je je erg klein. Dit is een aparte en bijzondere locatie!

Al een tijde stond deze op de planning. altijd super coole fotos ervan gezien. tijd om zelf te gaan. toen we aankwamen stond de deur gewoon open. Top! snel naar binnen. Het is ongelofelijk als je binnen staat de architectuur en de echo gewoon het hele plaatje klopte. zeker de moeite waard om eens heen te gaan!!

The IM cooling tower is probably one of the most well-known industrial spots in Western Europe. It's very easy to find out where it is, there is no security at all and you can access the cooling tower through a huge gap in the fence, which explains why there were a lot of people in or near the cooling tower when we went there. Still, it's a nice place to see. There is a lot of graffiti on the tower but it isn't that bothersome and you'll forget all about it when you're standing inside the cooling tower and realize how massive it actually is.

A faire absolument !

Perfect to take a look there as a new one. It is very easy to find and view the location. next to the cooling tower you have a tank across the street, which is not really worth it. On the other side of water you can also notice that there is a factory there that they are demolishing, it was that factory that used that cooling tower.

Powerplant IM

16 juli 2019,

Ditmaal was de deur gewoon op, het enige waar ik rekening mee moest houden waren de werkmannen op het terrein die druk in de weer waren.

Het is echt een gave locatie, op wat graffiti na is deze helemaal intact.
