The Power Plant

When Chee Hsin Cement created their power plant in 1906, they called it the “original power plant” (原动力厂), using a 1000-horsepower two-stage horizontal steam engine made by Korley (?) from Germany,  德国寇利资厂制造的1000马力二级卧式汽力引擎发动机 and then updated to Siemens Water-tube boiler (?) in 1911.

The former power plant is on the compound of the Qixin Museum. During my 2019 trip, I spotted many Chee Hsin tiles#1071 hexagon tiles, #1074 sq tiles, and the red & blue tiles.
