Maailman korkein vesivoimalaitospato Tadzikistaniin
Work has officially begun on what Tajik officials say will be the world's tallest dam, following a ceremony that included president Emomali Rahmon over the weekend. The 335-meters-tall dam 3,600 MW Rogun hydroelectric plant will impound Tajikistan's Vakhsh River.
Italian industrial group Salini Impregilo had signed a framework agreement worth US$3.9 billion to build the project. Siemens AG signed an agreement in July to provide gas-insulated high-voltage switchgear (GIS) for the project’s power plant. [ren]
Teholtaan maailman suurin on Three Gorges Dam 22.5 GW, ja Rogunia suurempia on tuotannossa 18 ja rakenteilla 11.
