Cycling in Vlissingen-Oost

Today I cycled a bit through the industrial area of Vlissingen. A lot has changed. And before new installations can be built, the old one must first be safely demolished. EPZ’s coal-fired power plant has been out of operation for years and its chimney is now being demolished. Of all Thermphos buildings, only the skeleton of the Zuurfabriek is still standing. Who would have thought in the past that the Zuurfabriek would be the last to remain standing proudly?

At the end of the pier you are almost in the middle of the Westerschelde, a fabulous place to take pictures
