Ledvice Information Centre

Free excursion! The Ledvice Information Centre focuses on the traditional coal power engineering and it is the first of its kind in the Czech Republic. In terms of topics it complements the other information centres of the CEZ Group focused on nuclear power engineering and renewable resources.

New: Virtual tour!

The new Information Centre has three floors and features a distinct modern architectural and artistic design. The style of the exhibition is action, interactive, it offers the adventure form of presentations and utilises the highly advanced audiovisual technology, e.g. 3D imaging, virtual reality, on-line measurement of the living tree photosynthesis, detailed description of the technology of a new coal-fired power plant unit, etc. The Information Centre’s capacity for groups is 50 persons.

ilustr. obr. - IC LedviceThe Information Centre provides a view of the past, presence and future of traditional power engineering. Its visitors can first see a 3D film to get acquainted with the origins of both the Space and the Earth and its evolution. That way everybody will learn at the beginning of the excursion when dinosaurs roamed among the lycopods and horsetails, what fate they suffered and what the result of it all was. 

Coal, naturally, and from there there was only a small step, however taking many centuries, to the birth of the first coal-fired power plant followed by other ones. The final view of the floodlit towns does not leave anybody in doubts that they are in the right place – in the foreground of the Ledvice Power Heating Plant, where a new modern and highly eco-friendly generator is being built.

You can also get acquainted with it in the virtual and interactive world of the Information Centre. Everybody can use a joystick to enter the large 3D screen and see what the power plant looks like on the inside. You can walk around the turbine, peek into the desulphurisation, boiler room and other premises. An audio-panel with sounds of a cooling tower, turbine, electrical dust eliminators and other power plant facilities is a commonplace. Online measurement of the living tree photosynthesis and land reclamation are worthy of mention. Everybody can also test their knowledge of traditional power engineering using more or less demanding tests, regardless the fact whether they knew the information before their visit to the Information Centre or learnt it right there.
