Coal Fired Power Station, Germany. by 

Neurath Power Station is a lignite-fired power station at Neurath in Grevenbroich, Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located to the south of Grevenbroich, near to Cologne and Düsseldorf. The power station consists of five units and it is owned by RWE. In addition, two new units are under construction. After completing the new units, Neurath will be the world’s largest lignite-fired power station.
The existing power station serves manly as the base load power station. The power station consists of five units (3 × 300 MW and 2 × 600 MW nominally) which were built between 1972 and 1976, and have a gross generation capacity of 2,205 MW.

The lignite is delivered by rail from open pits in Rheinish lignite district, in particular from Garzweiler and Hambach mines.

People tell me I should take pictures which sell, but I feel I would be selling my soul. Instead I keep on taking the pictures which I enjoy taking. I will probably never get rich from photography, or even make a decent living from it, but at least I will have left authentic images which might just be of of interest to someone after I have gone!
