  Three Gorges Dam Project
   

Three Gorges Dam, the World's Largest Hydroelectric Project.
The Yangtze River was completely blocked on Nov. 6, 2002 at the Three Gorges when the opening in the diversion canal of the Dam Project was closed. Hence the natural flow of the mighty river at the Three Gorges is cut.
The Three Gorges Dam will incorporate a Power Station, to be the largest of its kind in the world, with a total installed capacity of 18,200 MW, generating 84.7 billion KWH, or one-ninth of the national total generated power, a year.
The Three Gorges, one of the famous sightseeing attraction in China, consist of Qutang, Wuxia and Xiling Gorges, stretch 192 kilometers from Baidicheng (White Emperor City) in Chongqing in the west, to Yichang in Hubei Province in the east.
