La Turbine, Belgium


Albert Primez, a small industrialist in the area, who owned the Marmor Workshops, a small marble cutting and a shaping plant, decided to produce electricity by his own means. In 1909, he set up a small hydroelectric power plant in an old hammer forge established along the Biesme in the woods between Gougines and Sart-Eustache. This small unit was nicknamed 'The Turbine' by the inhabitants of the neighbouring villages. Later, Albert Primez also financed the installation of lighting in Gougines.
