Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, Concordia

(3.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the modern technology and engineering of Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, a large dam that provides over 70 percent of Uruguay's energy and 10 percent of Argentina's. Built under the auspices of a historically important cooperation by the two nations, the dam straddles the Uruguay River between Salto and Concordia, and represents the first undertaking of its kind in Latin America. A guided tour from a knowledgeable docent gives insight into the structural ingenuities of engineering employed here, and as well as the dam's crucial role for both nations' infrastructures. Plan to see Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam and other attractions that appeal to you using our Concordia tour planner.

  • A different visit to perform if you are near Concordia. Coming to the complex, there is a small museum and a microcinema and one is can register for them visits that leave every 1 / 2 hour approx. All is free, you carry in micro above the dam until the side Uruguayan, after turned to the Argentine (without download, not there is that present any documentation or nothing), is for in a point panoramic and then is visit the room of machines where are them usinas. All very friendly and well organized, in total the visit takes one to two hours.

  • The visit to the central hydroelectric is an of them indispensable if one is in Concord or if going to pass to the Uruguay. I called the attention it neatness, courtesy, good predisposition and in general all it lived in this visit free. Very interesting is the history of the work and worthy of knowing.
