Former Arcelor power station in Avilés, Northern Spain.

Picture taken on January 07. Demolition on going. There is a pretty oposition on the population against the demolition of this nice building. There was a hope to save the building to became a museum as the Tate gallery but now the demolition is well advanced. It was commisioned on 1956 to provide energy to the steel mills and decomissioned on 2004. The four blast furnaces were demolished in 2000. Only remains the coke ovens to be decommisoned in 2010 and the former Martins Siemens building, it was bought by a company to manufature pressure vessels. Into the machine hall there are three steam turbines Escher-Wyss. The building is inspired on bauhaus style.
