Which is the Biggest Dam?

Posted by zenerwave on July 2, 2009

  • Itaipu Dam on the border of Brazil and Paraguay is the biggest dam in the world right now and has the largest power generators.
  • The highest dam is the Rogun in Tajikistan. It is an unfinished dam across the Vakhsh River in southern Tajikistan. Construction began in 1976, however the project was frozen. In February 2007, Russia announced a partnership with Tajikistan to complete the dam
  • Three Gorges Dam, in Hubei Province, China, will be the world’s largest dam and largest concrete structure and create the largest lake. It is nearly completed and going to start in 2009.The dam will be built across the 3 Gorges section of the Yangtze River. It will be a 610-foot high wall running about 1.3 miles from bank to bank. Requiring 12 years and tens of thousands of workers to complete, the dam will cost $29 billion, and will create a 370 mile long lake, a distance equal to nearly half the length of California, that will be visible from Earth orbit.
