EDF – AMBIALET HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT

Information

At Ambialet, the Tarn river describes a long 3-kilometre loop.

Where the river seems to double back on itself, the Ambialet peninsula is only thirty metres wide. This unique site, which was the most important stronghold in the Albi region for over two centuries, still bears traces of its prestigious past. It was in the heart of this site that the 5th power station of the Saut du Tarn plant was erected. The plant began to take an interest in using the Ambialet falls as early as 1913. “Building in this magnificent, rugged, wild site aroused the desire to respect such a wonderful setting in my Parisian father. His project, accepted without hesitation by the Saut du Tarn Board of Directors, reflected the vision of the engineer in successfully striking a balance between the necessity of the structure with the beauty of the site,” remembers the daughter of the architect, André Nibart.
