The main aim of this project is to achieve the implementation of hydroelectric microturbines and complementary equipment aimed at generating on isolated networks. The hydroelectric unit, which is currently operating near Ligny-en-Barrois (Meuse/France), produces power that covers the needs for electricity of an entire household. The installation of a Kaplan unit (of 800 mm diameter), a metallic trash rake, a water inlet, an alternator, a set of screens, an automatic trash rake as well as a protection and regulation panel has been carried out according to completely re-designed civil engineering plans. Net output reaches 22 kW. The hydroelectric unit has been operating since March 1988.
