Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, Concordia

(4/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • The work, impressive, very good attention to visitors, the guide is very helpful and responds to all the concerns, there is a sample of photos during the construction of the dam, items of everyday use in the transport of extra high voltage and element which were used for its construction, in the surrounding area you can see some elements out of use and new ones that are used and used in the Central. Entering a video very interesting (and with many data) pass on the project and construction of the complex. The visit to the dam was slightly longer and to show us more technical elements would have liked.
