Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, Concordia

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.

  • It is a guided tour of the binational hydroelectric dam Argentina-Uruguay. begins on the Argentine side and iterates through all the dam will reach the Uruguayan side and through the turbines and the locks. Very nice experience and is totally free.
