The End Of An Era
(May take awhile to load...)
All good things come to end
Don't ask me about reasons
Politics above economics?
Just Remember December
The end of an era
Gone is the skyline
Gone are the clouds
Only the silence
only the silence...
RIP December 2000, Rozenburg: It was good while it lasted.
The First Victim
The first to go: The urea plant, obscured by the fumes of the cooling tower...
...while the ammonia plant is still running, oblivious to its fate.
The last prills falling onto an almost empty fluidized bed.
And Then... Goliath Has To Go
Her last breath does not come quietly...
...when safeties are howling in a tribute to this record-breaking plant.
The Third Casualty
The Nitric Acid plant colors the atmosphere for the last time.
No pictures of a dying CAN-plant. Nothing shows, it just stops.
Peacefully she stands. Still whole, but the change of colors already indicating the first signs of decay.
The cloud generator has lost it's impact on the atmosphere...
Only the depleted dolomite pile shows that something's terribly wrong with this plant.
The bar is closed (forever?)
