The building’s simple shapes and distinctive details signal ’power station’ – shorn of all such familiar building features as doors, windows or storey divisions. The facades are clad with copper panels which, in a few years’ time, will take on a warm tone and eventually, through the workings of time and weather, acquire a greenish patina with a fine play of colours and a beautiful depth. Visitors can observe the technical installation in operation from footbridges on several storeys in the large halls. The station is based on gas production from biomass, and is the first of its kind in the world. A showroom has been established for visitors, as well as footbridges on several storeys in the large halls, to allow the public to learn about the complex and watch it in action.
