Sale of a hydroelectric power plant of kW located in Aude. Water rights in perpetuity for a maximum power of kW. Height of fall higher than 4,8 m for a flow of 12,1 m3/s. Anual production around 2,1 GWh for a turnover averages k€ under EDF H07 contract. Dams generally were built to store and provide water for mechanical power generation (e.g., waterwheels to mill grain), industrial cooling, hydroelectric power generation, agricultural irrigation, municipal water supplies for human consumption, and impoundment-based recreation (e.g., boating and sport fishing).
