5 partners

Our ambitious and innovative approach involves public and private partners, industrials and scientists, companies and associations. As the list of partners below shows, the LIFE4FISH project is clearly able to unite stakeholders, facilitate partnerships and coordinated action.

Luminus Production department

Luminus invests to face the energy challenges of tomorrow: the company is committed to delivering innovative energy efficiency solutions to its customers and is pursuing its developments in renewable energy. Luminus' vision is based on its involvement to best satisfy its customers and to provide its 2,000 employees with attractive career opportunities. For the 5th year in a row, the company ranks among the top 59 employers in Belgium. Luminus benefits from its strong local roots and from the expertise of the EDF Group, one of the major players in the global energy sector.

The Production Department within Luminus brings expertise and knowledge related to investment, operation and maintenance operations of hydropower infrastructures. In charge of the operation of several dams along the Lower Meuse, Luminus also brings technical expertise as operator within the consortium.

EDF Group

Since 1947, the National Hydraulics and Environmental Laboratory (LNHE) has studied the interaction of water and the environment with the power generation facilities of EDF.

Our mission consists of three main objectives:

  • strengthen the environmental acceptability of EDF’s production facilities with regard to aquatic habitats (and public health via the food chain): excess heat, chemical waste, radiological emissions, biological effects, morphodynamics, integrity of rivers, etc.
  • protect the production facilities (hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants) against environmental factors: floods, inundations, storms, low water, heatwaves, biological impacts (aquatic plants, biofouling).
  • contribute to the optimisation of our means of production by ensuring the water availability necessary for the cooling system of nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power stations, and, within the scope of the decarbonation of the energy mix, contribute to the development of marine energy and offshore wind energy.
