Former Ghent power station joins Industriana

De Centrale, Ghent

The construction of an urban electricity plant in Ghent started in 1924. Two years later, two turbo alternators (working on coals) supplied the first electricity. The big art deco Turbine Hall - including all turbines & accessories, an overhead crane, the control and signal equipment, the clock and the control panels - remained preserved. This Turbine Hall was protected by law on November 18, 1999.

Now the old power station 'De Centrale' (The PowerStation) is an intercultural cultural center, which considers the multicultural diversity in Ghent and Flanders as the  inspiring reference and a challenging working context.
