Hydroelectric power station perfectly integrated into the city

On the edge of Iller River, a tributary of the Danube, a hydroelectric power station that generates 10.5 million kWh of clean energy per year was built in one of the 1950s for 5,000 households in the German town of Kempten, Bavaria.

For the project, the architects took into account the integration of a fishing area or noise prevention measures. There is also a path for pedestrians and cyclists which allows a greater and better integration of the city with the river.
