Four nice industrial shots Kenny. I think i like this one best because of the sky accentuating the light on the structures.It just goes to show that pictures don't have to be all beautiful landscapes etc.
Many thanks Neil I like your comment regarding the "beautiful landscapes", your'e right. This is not ugly, just different!
You are both right Neil and Kenny!
This one is actually quite beautiful.
I have no idea what the white plant is, I don't think it is part of the Ferrybridge station.
If your title refers to Ferrybridge, you couldn't exchange it for one wind turbine, you would need several hundred of them!
The title came about after viewing several photos of wind turbines. Turbines are a bit "seen one, seen them all" Ferrybridge has far more character including the smoke and smells.
Looks like a COAL handling facility to me - blame coal for global warming . The second original use for coal ( heating # 1 ) was to produce GUNPOWDER ( Carbon + Limestone = global domination ) - things haven't changed much over the years !
I don't think it is coal handling facility. There are no big conveyors connecting it to the coal yard.
It could be lime stone handling for the flue gas desulphurization (FGD). If there is wet FGD, a lot of pulverized lime stone is need and in big stations it can be milled on site. From Google Earth it looks like there was a retrofitted FGD for two units on the station. There is also a long pipeline connecting this facility to the FGD plant, so they may be pumping lime-stone slurry from here to the FGD.
These retrofitted FGDs are a pain in the ass for designers and operators, because normally there is not enough space and very long pipelines, conveyor lines and flue gas ducts are needed. They are expensive to build and operate.
So now they are using both coal and lime stone there and could actually have built a big gunpowder factory!!?? What do you think Waldo?
Best regards, Timo
I'm not sure, but I don't think they're making fireworks !
