Abandoned Sinter Plant

Ostrava, Czech republic

February 2015

 

This factory stopped production in 1998. It used to process (agglomerate) iron ore dust. It's product was delivered to nearby blast furnaces. Well, that blast furnaces are now turned to something like a technological museum.

 

As I researched a little bit, this factory will be sooner or later demolished. The smoke stack is 101 meters (331 ft) high and 15 meters (49 ft) thick at the bottom.

 

It is set near the center of the city. I have never seen this factory so clearly thanks to the lack of leaves in the winter time. It is photographed from behind the fence.

  

Thanks for faves and comments.
