(55+30c) HERTOG REIJNOUT STEAM PUMPING STATION 7.4.1987
The Arkemheense polder is one of the oldest polders in the Netherlands, and for one hundred years, the Hertog Reijnout Steam Pumping Station was responsible for draining it. Even now, the coal-powered steam pumping station is called on to help out when water levels are extreme. The pumping station is open to the public and there is a visitors' centre in the old coal shed.
