Hoek van Holland seen from Scheveningen.
The good old D70 modified and I suspect the 105/2.5 which then wasn't chipped...

Andy, your Cern image is very impressive. Was it work or visit?

Thanks for the comment, Arend.
Nice to see the cranes from a different angle, Andy.


Back to Fairbanks, the University's power plant in cold weather. It is coal fueled, but mostly "only" releasing steam and CO2...

You shouldn't be [surprised]. Much of the core industry is based upon hydro-electric resources, which are plentiful on the Western Coast ....
This one is  coal and woodchip in an energy intense process to reduce quartz (siliciumdioxide) to silicium, mainly used in the electrical industry.
I stand corrected:
This one is using hydro electrical energy to reduce quartz (siliciumdioxide) to silicium by adding coal and woodchip in an energy intense process.

Most of these industry plants use hydropower for metallurgic processes. Coal burning is not very Norwegian. Aluminium production is huge on the Western coast. There are also ferro silica plants.

Give me the location and I'll look it up to clarify.

From the company's site:

"the site’s location on Hemnefjord enables WACKER to cover its electricity demand for the manufacture of silicon metal almost entirely from hydro-power"

Coal is used for chemical reduction, but the power demand is not from burning coal.
