scrapped

Flooded Unit

There’s concrete under that dirt… under that water… somewhere.

MG Bay

The pit on the left was one of two that accommodated the bottom half of the Motor Generators, which converted AC to DC.

Torched Feeds

Cauterized wounds on the factory floor, where the middle of the newer mill opens up to allow massive equipment. Now the pipes are cut and the equipment is gone.

Workhouse III

This part of the workhouse was sheathed in fiberglass, but now you can see its insides from a mile away.

Scrapped Turbine Hall

The turbine hall, without turbines. I guess that makes this a hall… at least it has a clock.

Dockolition

Here you can see the end of the scrapping phase in 2011.

From the Old Mill

This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.

Turbotrash

A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.

Turbine Casing

The end of one of the scrapped turbines. Judging by the aborted attempt at cutting it in half, the scrappers had some trouble with this one.
