Turów Power Plant

We were in Saxony, Germany recently to photograph the narrow gauge steam railways still surviving in the Dresden area. While making a (very) early drive into Zittau, a high vantage point gave this dramatic view of the Turów power plant which is just over the border in Poland.

The Turów plant burns brown coal from the nearby Turów open cast lignite mine delivered by a system of belts and conveyors and is a subject that receives a lot of concern from the environmentalists.
