      | More

« France’s leading supplier of 100% renewable energy (hydroelectricity, solar and wind energy), CNR has built and now operates the hydroelectricity developments on the Rhône river with three inter-related missions: hydropower generation, navigation, irrigation and agricultural uses.

CNR and the floods of the Rhône:

The design, and also the operation of the developments is based on one essential principle: neutrality with regard to floods.
CNR has thus incorporated the flood factor in the overall design of its 19 dams and hydroelectricity plants (preservation of natural flood plains, maintenance of flood drainage capacities, construction of embankments) and pursues a permanent policy of monitoring and maintenance of its developments in order to guarantee hydraulic safety.

When the river is in flood, it runs its developments in strict compliance with operating instructions approved by the authorities, and works closely with the public flood forecasting system, in particular by providing the State departments with its hydrometric data and by sharing its own expertise in the field of forecasting.”

CNR’s expertise:

CNR's expertise in river engineering and hydropower projects is based on a wide range of competences for the benefit of CNR and its clients in France and abroad:

  • Hydropower developments, inland waterways, river restoration, river systems development,
  • Flood protection, flood forecasting,
  • And assistance to owners:

CNR promotes its unique experience under the label “CNR Engineering”. CNR Engineering profits by the expertise of CNR’s specialists in operation and maintenance (O&M) and in hydrometeorological forecasting via the COCPIT optimisation center. CNR Engineering relies also on an integrated laboratory, the CACOH endowed with rare competences in physical modelling, structure monitoring and metrology (hydrometry, bathymetry, hydrography).”
