river Dommel, The Netherlands

On Saturday November 5, 2016 the first Dutch cooperative hydro power scheme will be opened officially.

The initial test results were successful and the green electricity is already generated by means of the Landustrie hydropower screw turbine. This new hydro power scheme is located at the existing weir in river Dommel, near Sint Michielsgestel and will supply approx. 600.000 kWh per year.

Watch the first test run, in the presence of Jan Taks, together with Bram Taks the initiators of this crowdfunding project.
