The Biggest Dam on Earth

Some information on the biggest dam on the surface of this planet

The Three Gorges Dam in China is the biggest dam in the world. It is more than 2 km long and 60 stories tall! It spans the Yangtze River in Central China. 40,000 workers worked for 17 years to build this superb and gigantic structure. The dam has a capacity of over 20,000 MW of power generation, which is twice as much as the total capacity of all the nuclear stations in the United Kingdom! Before building the dam, China had to divert the Yangtze River and move around a million people from the area that was going to be flooded due to the diversion. This video provides detailed information on the Three Gorges Dam’s construction and engineering aspects with some exclusive camera footages.
