1. Three Gorges Dam – Yangtze River, China
The Three Gorges Dam is a marvel of modern engineering and is also one of its finest achievements to date.
Able to generate 22,500 MW or 22.5 GW of power, it is, by far, one of the largest (in terms of production) Hydro dams in the whole world.
Conception of the project started back in 1919 and in 2008, it was unveiled to the whole world. Since then, it has yet to meet another dam that rivals it in sheer beauty and generation power.
