A power plant to supply the Walsum colliery had been in operation here since 1928. From 1957, additional power plant blocks were built for general power supply, process steam and district heating.With a height of 300 m, the Walsum chimney is one of the highest in Germany. As the coal phase-out progresses, only Unit 10 is still in operation. Block 7 remains available as a cold reserve. Block 9 was taken offline in 2021.More information: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraftwerk_Duisburg-Walsum
