The Tuilières dam is one of the oldest dams in the Dordogne. Commissioned in 1908, it produces the equivalent of the residential consumption of 60,000 inhabitants every year!
Over the years, it has become a pilot site for hydroelectric production and the preservation of the environment and in particular migratory fish with its fish elevator, fish and eel passes!
Come and visit the Tuilières hydroelectric power plant and its new facilities during exceptional visits with the dam operator and the MIGADO association.
