Let’s meet Hervé Reul

A native of Baelen, Hervé Reul has been co-manager of the family business Reul Frères for 8 years now, managing director of mydimm, and responsible for the Watter Greenergy structure.

I bought the former Tiquet spinning mill in Forges almost eleven years ago. This building has a soul and a history filled with obstacles (fire during the First World War, end of the wool industry in the region, etc.). So, it is imbued with a kind of resilience, which appealed to me. I was the only potential buyer willing to restore the site to its former glory.

While cleaning up the premises, I discovered an old water wheel and thought it would be the icing on the cake of this project, once the rest of the building had been transformed into lofts. To do this, I launched a collaboration with a technical school and a company specializing in hydraulic energy. The apartments are now powered by electricity produced by the wheel.

The restoration project of the wheel received some media attention, and I had many requests for visits to come and see it. Due to lack of time, I couldn’t manage these visits on a daily basis and therefore looked for an alternative. That’s when I came up with the idea of ​​creating a restaurant without waiters. A gamble for me as it deviates from my area of expertise. People who wish can now come to eat, discover the wheel, and learn about its history through the book that contains a lot of information.

I was a bit overwhelmed by the success of the initiative; I even see people coming back after a first visit to the restaurant. In the guestbook, the expression that often appears is « A timeless moment. » No network, a privatized place, a quality meal, and the pleasure of watching the wheel turn. This is how L’Eauget was born, a contraction of water and wheel.

To ensure that the maximum amount of energy produced on-site is consumed there, without being rejected onto the grid, I also decided to install electric vehicle charging stations. They are rare in the region, and furthermore, customers sometimes come from far away. The two charging stations are accessible to everyone, whether a customer of L’Eauget or not.

Finally, I noticed that I often had requests from customers who wanted to stay in the area, and I had to refer them to nearby hotels. As a space initially planned for a future apartment was still available on the Forges site, I decided to change its purpose and turn it into tourist accommodation. A brunch is now also offered to guests staying overnight, before hitting the road again, well-rested. This accommodation is also powered by the wheel.

For all these services, it is important to me to work with local producers and traders.

Une brique dans le ventre

This week, Cédric and Virginie explore a building undergoing an exceptional renovation, both from a heritage and sustainable development perspective. They take us on a journey to discover the restoration and rehabilitation of an old water wheel that provides 100% of the electricity for a unique restaurant, ‘L’Eauget.’

The works were carried out in collaboration between a vocational school in Malmedy and a local company, a great way to pass on knowledge and skills.

Unusual dinner in an exceptional setting

Dining in an exceptional location, just a few steps from a water wheel and via an unusual concept. This is the somewhat crazy challenge that Hervé Reul embarked on several years ago. After five years of hard work to restore his famous water wheel, his unusual dining space is finally open.
