The existing Flevocentrale power station at Lelystad is to be replaced. At the new station, electricity will be produced by state of the art methods using advanced high efficiency steam and gas turbines.

Each of the four planned units consists of a turbine room linked to a steam boiler. The boilers were designed with opal glass facades to serve as beacons for nearby shipping traffic. The layered abstraction of the expanded metal facades emphasizes the utilitarian character of the structure. At night, however, the building’s lights produce an almost ‘domestic’ effect in the flat polder landscape.
