Although most power plants tend to either blend into the city landscape, or are situated in a location far off from the hustle and bustle of urban life, the Hugo Kaagman 'Stadshaard' design embraces its essence.

Located in downtown Roombeek, the Hugo Kaagman 'Stadshaard' is a Combined Cycle Energy (CHP) plant that is tiled in beautiful blue and white glazed delftware tiling. This power plant uses two gas turbans that generate electricity and heating, which makes it twice as efficient as plants that simply generate energy.
