HF6

Former flagship of the metallurgical industry in Belgium, the HF6 is now asleep. A sleep that is likely to drag on. When such a tool falls into the hands of a foreign tycoon who does not care about the region, the end of the story is already known.
And it will not be the only one...

This site isn't abandoned. Most electrical panels are live and the sound of gas flow in the pipes is clearly audible. Moreover, the very nature of the place makes it particularly dangerous.
Playing games with the guardian, it finally finds us. After a few explanations about our motivations, this one will let us still take some pictures. A big thanks to him.
In order not to abuse his kindness, the rest of the visit will be postponed.

Let’s walk into a maze of metal and concrete.

The cloakroom building, in a state of advanced ruin.

A floor that wants to see what happens below.

Chassis don't hold in place anymore.

The production of molten cast iron was evacuated to the other iron and steel sites by train, in tank cars. One is visible to Heavy Metal.

Everything is dirty here.

Following the cessation of production, nature timidly takes over.

Evidence of activity certainly restricted, but still there.

It was a long time ago that no more trains go through here.

A wise advice. To be continued...
