The Project consists of the design, construction, operation and heavy maintenance of 29 automated navigation dams and was justified by the necessity to replace the former obsolete and dangerous to operate manual dams on the Aisne and Meuse rivers (northeast of France). The Project also includes the operation of two pre-existing dams, which have been modernised, and the operation of four micro-hydropower plants with a total capacity of 4.6 MW.
The new dams prevent flooding, regulate water flow, and produce electricity, to the benefit of the users of the rivers (navigation, irrigation, industry, fish farms) and the population living on the banks (protection against flooding, water reserves).
