Situated on a weir on the River Bela, the site was suitable for hydro development, and a low head micro hydro electricity generating plant is being constructed.  Opposite the site is a paper mill which will take the power generated.

This video shows progress up to the start of November 2009, following periods of heavy rain at the end of October.

Turbine installation is programmed before the end of 2009.
