RWE PUMP HYDRO-POWER PLANT

The RWE pump hydro-power plant is located in Herdecke, Germany. The project included the redevelopment of the upper reservoir. The predecessor of today’s plant is the so-called „Koepchenwerk“, which was built between 1927 and 1930 as one the biggest hydropower plants in Europe at that time. This plant balanced power peaks in the grid for over 60 years and was replaced by a new plant whose construction began at the end of the 20th century.
