Turbinenhalle at the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum

An der Jahrhunderthalle 1

44793 Bochum


A hall was built next to the steam jet house in 1895 to house steam turbines laid horizontally. As in the steam jet house these machines created wind power to drive the blast furnaces, then later electricity was produced in the turbine hall. The building contains two historic turbines – one from the 1930s and the other from 1958. Together with the steam jet house and the gas power plant, now the Jahrhunderthalle, the turbine hall supplied the steel works with power up until the 1960s.
