Information

The 3rd largest stakeholder in French industrial tourism, EDF has always been keen to open its hydroelectric developments to the public to introduce them to this industrial heritage.

The Eguzon hydroelectric development is located in the middle of a chain of hydroelectric sites on the river Creuse in the Indre region. The reservoir behind the Eguzon arch gravity dam was filled with water in 1926. At the time it was the most powerful dam in Europe. The power plant has an installed power of 70.6 MW and when running at full power it produces the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of a town with 41,000 inhabitants, like Châteauroux.

2016 will mark the 90th anniversary of when the reservoir at Eguzon was first filled with water. This occasion will be celebrated by two days of introduction to hydroelectric power on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th June 2016 for school parties and the general public.
