As part of the course “Power Plant Technology”, students from TU Freiberg went for an excursion to the LEAG power station “Schwarze Pumpe” on January 10, 2020.
It started at the LEAG visitor center. Here, a multimedia exhibition about the energy industry explains vividly how electricity gets reliably into the socket.
The actual power plant tour followed. Since the participating students specialize in the field of energy process engineering, the tour was a bit more technical than normal. Besides asking many questions, they also had the opportunity to visit many technical systems, such as coal supply, steam turbines, cooling tower and flue gas cleaning.
On the way home, everyone agreed that this trip into practice and the collected impressions were an enrichment for everyone.
