Central Electrique Ohm is a small powerplant in Belgium.
As we started to enter the city we pulled over to enter the location in to the sat nav. I pointed out a building in the industrial estate across the river as it looked rather interesting. Well it certainly was interesting and it turns out that was where we were heading.
Built early in the 20th century as an addition to the surrounding iron works. As the site grew to become one of Belgiums largest metal factories it was considered beneficial to supply their own electricity. A turbine hall was built in the industrial revolution style. A large brick building with a steel roof house the three stunning turbines which are stilll in brilliant condition.
Eventually the site closed, as a result the power station became defunct. This is now the oldest remaining building of the site and has been protected since the turn of the 21st century.
More recently the site was purchased by an investor who embarked on a full restoration project. It is now used as an events space.
