Somewhere around 2008 I first attempted to visit this power plant. Back then, everything was still pretty good locked up and the only entrance point involved climbing up to the second level on an improvised ladder build out of scrap. As soon as I started climbing up, we heard some loud noises coming from the inside. We chickened out due the thought of getting confronted with some copper thieves whilst carrying several thousands of euro’s on gear with us and only one way out functioning as a bottle-neck. If our schedule wasn’t as tight we would have wait it out, but we moved on to the next location on our list.
In 2011 I went exploring some underground mines with a friend and eventually we ended up camping in the village of the power plant, so I made a revisit. When we approached the building we spotted some guy’s on the roof shouting indistinctly in their local dialect at us. We ignored them, walked around the large building and entered on the other side. This time it was a peace of cake to enter the power plant, since several entrances has been created. Obviously this led to more vandalism speeding up the decay of this location very fast. Whilst we were inside, we heard several other groups running around, trashing stuff and spaying graffiti. We decided it was smarter to stay unseen, which was pretty easy since they made so much noise you’d hear them coming from a mile.
