Municipal Power Plant

"In 1910, the complex of power plant buildings on Lopuskiego St opened. It formed the basis of municipal power company - the hydro mill on Mlynska St (the hydrophone building remains remains to these days *) was also a resource. The main power plant had a DC headquarters of 2 x 220 V with a steam- power generator and a battery pack. Power generation was provided by two steam boilers manufactured by Steinmmuler from Gummersbach. Its heating surfaced measured 76.3 m2, with built-in superheaters with an area of 16.7 m2 to 11 Atm of excess pressure and temperature of 325 °C. In the engine room, there were two double steam machines, produced by Hannoversche Maschinenbau A.-G. from Hannover withthe utility power of 180 hp coupled to a DC generator manufacctured by Siemens-Schuckert-Werke from Berlin. This company also made the powerline network and street lighting. Technical equipment was scrapped at the end of the 1950s. 'Marona' was placed in the buildings confectionery factory."

"Zespół budynków elektrowni przy ul. Łopuskiego został oddany do użytku w 1910 r. Stanowił podstawę miejskiego zakładu energetycznego, w którego zasobie znajdowała się również elektrownia wodna przy ul. Młyńskiej (budynek hydroforni zachował się do dziś *). Elekrownia główna miała centralę prądu stałęgo 2 x 220 V z napędem parowym i baterią akumulatorów. Wytwarzanie prądu zapewniały dwa kotły parowe produkcji firmy Steinmuler z Gummersbach o powierzchni grzejnej 76,3 m2, z wbudowanymi przegrzewaczami o powierzchni 16,7 m2 na 11 Atm. nadciśnienia i temperaturze 325°C. W maszynowni były dwie podwójne maszyny parowe produkcji Hannoversche MAschinenbau A.-G. z Hanoweru z mocą użytkową 180KM, sprzężone z generatorami prądu stałego produkcji Siemens-Schuckert-Werke z Berlina, która wykonała również sieć kablową i oświetlenie ulic. Urządzenia techniczne zostały zezłomowane na końcu lat 50-tych XX w., a w budynkach umieszczono fabrykę słodyczy 'Marona'." Tablica obok budynku.

* The hydrophone building doesn't exist any more. It was demolished because of the safety reasons. You can read about that here.
* Hydrofornia już nie istnieje. Została zrównana z ziemią kilka tygodni temu z powodu bezpieczeństwa. Możecie przeczytać o tym tutaj.

  1. Amazing how such a little amount of power used to be enough for the whole town. It's nice to see the old buildings repurposed.
