South American hydro plant reaches record production

Itaipu Dam, the world’s second-largest hydropower plant, has achieved a global production record, reaching 2300 million MW per hour of energy accumulated in 31 years of operation.

The plant is shared by Paraguay and Brazil and the record is far above the second largest dam, China’s Three Gorges, according to official figures.

Sources pointed out that this amount of hydroelectric power would be enough to satisfy world demand for 38 days and 10 hours.

Itaipu was the world’s first hydroelectric power plant.
