The coal-fired Schelle power station was commissioned in 1966 by Engie Electrabel. Although it had served as a power plant several decades before, an explosion in 1963 resulted in the building of two new units, each with a 136 MW capacity. After 34 years of operating, the plant was closed in 2000 and demolished in 2010.
