Schoenenbourg Things to Do: 9 reviews and 33 photos
Normal power came in from the outside via cables that entered the fort at the midway point of the main gallery. During wartime, four 160hp generators could be used to provide power when outside sources were unavailable. Three could be used at one time with the last always being kept in reserve. Total loss of power would have meant loss of the fort.
