A grandiose view of the shore spillway. The structure contains an intake portal, two free-flow downstream tunnels with section 10x12m, an outlet portal, a five-phase fall and an offtake channel.

The intake portal serves for the gradual intake of water into two free-flow downstream tunnels each 1130m long, full-capacity discharge of each tunnel is 2000m3/s of water.

    Very impressive collection of photos. I am curious as to how this person was able to attain them though? Did they work for the company that was doing the construction or what? That spillway is going to be handling a massive amount of water. I wish there was a way to see it when it was running full bore and had water flowing through it. Thanks for the pictures.

    The gate takes 40 minutes to go down and 50 minutes to go up? Why can it not be as impressive as the rest of the structure?

    “full-capacity discharge of each tunnel is 2000m3/s of water.”

    For those who don’t speak metric, 2000m³ is a bit over a half million gallons.
