Open Day at our Demonstration Site in Andalucia - now booking

Event Date: 
Wednesday 29 May 2019

Visit our demonstration site in Andalucia for this free event to see our innovative micro-hydro technology in action in Irrigation networks

Join us for our open day and visit our REDAWN project pilot plant, which pioneers the recovery of valuable energy lost in irrigation water networks.   Take the opportunity to meet with members of the project team and discuss the project.  

This event demonstrates technology that recovers part of the energy lost in irrigation networks through the use of hydraulic microturbines (PAT) that take advantage of the excess pressure in the network to generate energy, allowing us to save resources and improve the sustainability of the water and irrigation sector.

The day will include a visit to the facilities of Nueces de Calonge to meet this important company that has opted for the technical challenges and the expected benefits of the project. To end the day, over lunch you can meet our Spanish partners, FERAGUA, FAEN and the University of Córdoba and discuss the project in more detail.

Register now for your free place at this event as numbers are limited.

This event will be highlighting work from the REDAWN research project (  REDAWN aims to improve the energy efficiency of water networks through the installation of innovative micro-hydropower technology. This technology will recover wasted energy in existing pipe networks across irrigation, public water supply, process industry, and waste-water network settings.

This project, which brings together 15 partners from 5 countries on the Atlantic coast, has a budget of 2.9 million Euros and is financed by the Interreg Atlantic Area program through the European Regional Development Fund.

Conference: Micro hydraulic power: sustainable solutions in urban areas

Event Date: 
Thursday 15 November 2018

REDAWN partners FAEN took part in a session at this conference focused on the possibilities of harnessing hydraulic power in urban areas for the general public.

The conference was organized by Botánico of Gijón in the framework of “Science Week”, whose main aim is to make Science and Technology more attractive to the General Public.

During the session FAEN presented the REDAWN project, objectives and actions, and explained the technology of PATs. At the end of the speeches there was a very active debate where people showed a great interest for PATs and they proposed some applications.
Speakers were Mr. Jose Luis Suarez Sierra, PhD. Professor in Civil Work Department in University of Oviedo and CEO Grupo Tactica; Mr. Vidal Gago CEO of the Municipal Water Company of Gijón and Mr. Indalecio González Fernández, Head of the Renewable Energies Department of FAEN
