Centrale de Monceau power station

Centrale de Monceau power station
This power station was built by the Intercom (now Electrabel) in 1921. Monceau sur Sambre was still an independent municipality and the new coal plant was one of the largest in Belgium. In the 50's and 60's, the plant was expanded and after Monceau sur Sambre in 1977 was added to the town of Charleroi this was the main supplier of energy in the region. Originally coal.fired, the newer part ran on gas and stood for years standby for any emergencies. It was closed in 2007.
