The hydropower plant Maurik was built in 1988 in the Lower Rhine at the weir of Amerongen. The hydropower plant is largely underground.

Besides the turbine and the operating rooms, it is possible to see the giant pipes (and hear), where the water flows at almost 20 meters below water level.

A fish ladder is built near the plant by Rijkswaterstaat.
