WELZOW, GERMANY - AUGUST 10: A bucket wheel excavator mines lignite coal at dusk in the Welzow open-pit lignite coal mine on August 10, 2013 near Welzow, Germany. The mine, operated by Vattenfall, is one of several in the immediate area that feed a nearby power plant with coal. In a development project initiated by state government, other nearby former open-pit mines have been turned into lakes in a rejuvenation effort that is also intended to make the area a viable tourist destination.
