    Hengsteysee - run-of-river power plant Hengstey near Herdecke / Hagen-BoeleThe Hengstey run-of-river power station is a hydroelectric power station at the end of the Hengsteysee in the course of the Ruhr, exactly at the city boundary between Herdecke and Hagen in North Rhine-Westphalia; The power plant building is located on the Hagener side.The run-of-river power plant was realized as a combination plant with a roller weir in the 1920s. After the construction of the Ruhr water was then dammed to Hengsteysee. Since then, the river water and the height difference of about 4.6 m provide the continuous basis for regenerative power generation.For hikers, runners and cyclists there is the opportunity to cross the Ruhr here directly over a pedestrian bridge at the power plant between Herdecke and Hagen. From here you have a great view of the roller weir and the Kaplan turbine houses. As on many bridges, the fashion of the "love castles" has not stopped, now decorate the bridge. Care is required for cyclists on the central tracks.

    At the weir, which closes off the Hengsteysee, RWE operates the Hengstey run-of-river power plant, which was renovated in 2007 and supplemented by a fish ladder in 2008. The power plant generates a maximum output of 3,300 kilowatts. The actual weir of four barrel-shaped locks can be opened at high tide, a lock system allows smaller vessels the passage.

    The bridge is a great piece of industrial history. Hopefully it will be finished soon so that hikers and cyclists don't get in each other's enclosure.
