Power generation.

Nature, énergie et patrimoine de Vessy.

This building is originally water pumping station built in 1867. It provided water to some areas of Geneva and was abandoned during the second part of the 20th century. The rehabilitation project took into account the environment, sustainability as well as history of the site and is now producing energy.

Cette photo est prise depuis l’ancienne station de pompage de Vessy, maintenant convertie en station hydro-électrique et la mise en oeuvre d’un projet de réhabilitation liant patrimoine, développement durable et les environs immédiats du site pour le rendre accessible au public.
