Coal ? You're sure ? Looks like nuclear plant for me.

Nuke plants don't have smokestacks or coal fields. Look to the south and you can see the mountains of coal.

Many people think these water cooling towers mark nuclear plants but they are just water cooling towers for condensing steam. The steam may be heated with coal, oil, nuclear power or natural gas.

Yep, coal fired plant. It does not appear to generate electricity. Notice the absence of any substantial transformer substation or high-tension power lines? There are, however, several above ground steam pipes leading to what appear to be industrial complexes, including one approximately 4 km to the NW. Perhaps this is a central steam generation plant serving a larger industrial area.
