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.
