Information

Commissioned in 1970, the EDF hydroelectric facility at Strasbourg (dam, locks and power plant) is equipped with 6 turbine generators with a total power of 150 MW installed outside to lighten the building structure.

The adjoining locks have 2 chambers and see over 16,000 vessels pass through annually, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on the Bâle-Rotterdam route.

The dam which separates the canal section from the natural Rhine river has resulted in the creation of Rohrschollen island, a remarkable natural area on the Rhine classed as a nature reserve since 1997.

The facility has the most recent fish pass on the Rhine. Designed in the form of a pseudo-natural river over 500 m long, it includes a panoramic viewing window and 2 viewpoints enabling the public to watch fish passing through during periods of migration.

During the tour you will see the locks, the power plant’s hydropower generators and the fish pass.
