The Sardar Sarovar Dam is a gravity dam on the Narmada river near Navagam, Gujarat in India. It is the largest dam and part of the Narmada Valley Project, a large hydraulic engineering project involving the construction of a series of large irrigation and hydroelectric multi-purpose dams on the Narmada river. The project took form in 1979 as part of a development scheme to increase irrigation and produce hydroelectricity.One of the 30 dams planned on river Narmada, Sardar Sarovar Dam (SSD) is the largest structure to be built. Following a number of controversial cases before the Supreme Court of India (1999, 2000, 2003), by 2014 the Narmada Control Authority had approved a series of changes in the final height – and the associated displacement caused by the increased reservoir, from the original 80m to a final 163m from foundation. The project will irrigate more than 18000km2, most of it in drought prone areas of Kutch and Saurashtra.The dam's main power plant houses six 200 MW Francis pump-turbines to generate electricity and include a pumped-storage capability. Additionally, a power plant on the intake for the main canal contains five 50 MW Kaplan turbine-generators. The total installed capacity of the power facilities is 1,450 MW. Its final configuration is the second largest concrete gravity dam (by volume) after Grand Coulee Dam in the US and has the world's third largest spillway discharging capacity.Plan trip to Songadh with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Sardar Sarovar Dam is a Mega project of Gujarat which generates a huge Hydro-electricity and Provides energy ⚡ to sister states ( Mp, Maharashtra). This project was initiated in the past by the name of great leader Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel. Soon the huge statue of Sri Sardar Vallabh bhai will be placed over this place.
