ITAIPU DAM

Come and experience an architectural and mechanical marvel of modern man with a tour of the Itaipu Dam in the Iguassu region of Brazil. During construction in the 1970s and 80s, the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam was regarded as a pharaonic work, the fruit of the megalomaniac commanders ruling Brazil in those years. Enjoy the panoramic tour, which will include a documentary film outlining the history of the power plant as well as a view of the dam and spillway from the central observation deck.

Though there was skepticism surrounding the construction of the dam, after three decades, today's perspective is quite different. Responsible for the production of 95% of electricity consumed in Paraguay, and for 24% of total Brazilian consumption, the dam has proved its magnitude in both the national and international scene. Remark at the sheer size of the structure, while considering the synergy that went into its construction for it was a true binational undertaking. Built by workers, technical operators, and engineers from both Brazil and Paraguay, it was truly a cooperative project with an outcome that has had lasting effects on many people. In addition to the production of energy, Itaipu is also a symbol of environmental preservation, with the operating company of the dam supporting continuous reforestation programs and projects that encourage fish production and animal reproduction.

Be entertained with the spectacular views, awed by the scale, and educated on the history of the Itaipu dam on this informative tour.
