North Rhine-Westphalian Environment Minister, Johannes Remmel, and Dr. Hans Bünting, CEO of RWE Innogy, today officially inaugurated the fish protection pilot plant at the hydropower station of Unkelmühle. The power plant on the Sieg river has been converted into a pilot plant for fish protection as from 2011 to allow upstream and downstream fish migration at this point of the Sieg river. An ecological and technical monitoring programme, scheduled to run up to 5 years, will now investigate the effectiveness of the implemented measures and any possible further improvements. Moreover, the programme seeks to ascertain in how far plants of this kind are compatible with the cost-efficient generation of renewable energy from small-scale hydropower plants.more

Construction work on the Königshovener Höhe wind farm is in full swing, with the first wind turbine having been successfully installed today. In a first step, a lattice-boom crane hoisted the steel tower elements onto the concrete tower which had been completed before. Subsequently, the nacelle, which weighs a hundred tons and houses both gearbox and generator, was installed on top of the so-called hybrid tower at a height of 143 meters. In a last step the rotor star was mounted. The three rotor blades connected to the hub have a length of 57 meters each. The wind turbine has a total height of 200 meters and a capacity of 3.2 megawatts.more
