The video discusses the engineering and history of the Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest hydroelectric power plant. It highlights the massive construction of the dam and the elevator used to move boats between the two levels. The video also discusses the importance of the project and how it will help reduce the risk of flooding in the area.

  • 00:00:00 China is the world's largest producer of goods and is soon to be the world's largest economy. However, this success comes with a major challenge - huge energy needs. Living in Shanghai, it is easy to see how much energy is consumed in a typical day. Just in this city, the population has increased by 24 million people in the last 50 years, and China needs more energy. Traditional Chinese energy sources, such as coal, consume as much energy as the energy consumed by all of the other countries combined, but are ultimately unsustainable resources. Chinese engineers face a problem that seems impossible to solve - how to maintain lights on and China's dreams of becoming a superpower with a sustainable economy. Diego Ande travels to China to learn more about the country's energy dilemma and the Chinese engineers' solution. They have dreamed of building a hydroelectric dam like the Three Gorges Dam for over 100 years, and the construction is now coming to its final phase. The Dam's Director Delegated, Mr. Juaning, is the challenge of a lifetime. He has worked here for more than 30 years, and believes this is the project he has seen the most in his life. Building such a huge structure with such a large amount of
  • 00:05:00 The Hoover Dam was a groundbreaking engineering feat when it was built in 1931. The massive construction project required the use of innovative engineering techniques and the professor of civil engineering, Andrew Smith, was tasked with inspecting the project. From high up, he was able to see the incredible structure of concrete and water that made up the Hoover Dam. It was the largest concrete structure in the world at the time, and even today, 80 years later, it is still a impressive sight. In order to prevent the concrete from curing too quickly, engineers devised a method of passing cold water through small pipes to cool the concrete. This ingenious solution allowed the dam to be completed two years ahead of schedule and it is still in use today, supplying water to three states.
  • 00:10:00 The Three Gorges Dam, also known as the China (Las Tres Gargantas) La Presa Más Potente del Mundo, is a massive dam located in the middle of the Yangtze River. The engineers who built the dam used pioneering techniques from the Hoover Dam, including transporting the materials by high-speed transport vehicles. The key ingredient for this project was cold air, which was frozen even before the concrete was mixed. It took over 30,000 workers to build the dam wall at a rate of 20,000 square meters per day. At its peak, the dam employed over 30,000 people. In 2006, the dam was completed, and with it came one of the most ambitious engineering projects ever attempted. The Three Gorges Dam was built to control regular flooding on the Yangtze River and to exploit its potential for hydroelectricity. The engineer responsible for the project, Juaning Wang, spoke about the challenge of building such a massive dam in an interview. He said, "the river and its adjacent canal are very crowded and vital, and we can't just leave them as is." The dam has prevented millions of people from being displaced and has provided a much needed source of hydroelectric power.
  • 00:15:00 The video, named "CHINA (Las Tres Gargantas) La Presa Más Potente del Mundo - Documentales", provides a documentary about the world's most powerful water barrier, the Three Gorges Dam in China. The video features interviews with engineers and experts on the project, and highlights the massive construction of the dam and the elevator used to move boats between the two levels. The video also discusses the importance of the project and how it will help reduce the risk of flooding in the area.
  • 00:20:00 The "CHINA (Las Tres Gargantas) La Presa Más Potente del Mundo - Documentales" video covers the history and engineering of the world's largest water reserve, the Three Gorges Dam. The dam is faced with the challenge of engineering apparent impossible tasks every 10 years or so, with tragic consequences. There have been at least 200 floods in the past 200 years, costing the lives of over 300,000 people. The reservoirs can help control excessive rainfall, but also lead to devastating floods. One of the problems is erosion when water from the reservoir overflows and impacts the foundation. Engineers need to study one of the most innovative engineering feats in history in order to address this risk. In 1930, the first large-scale dam was built on the River Stockton in France, entrusted to the engineer André Coin. It is an experience incredible but quite terrifying. Dr. Risk Morgan, from the U.S. Department of the Interior, is getting familiar with the immense reservoir of the Atlantic Ocean. I'm here with this giant reservoir behind me. I'm next to its spillway, and thankfully today the gates are not open. If the reservoir were too high and water overflowed the gates, I
  • 00:25:00 The video discusses the history of energy, and how the invention of the steam engine by James Francis helped to change the way we use energy. It focuses on one particular invention by James Francis, the Francis turbine, which is still in use today.
  • 00:30:00 The Three Gorges Dam is the world's largest hydroelectric project, and it uses the biggest Francis turbines ever built. This video shows how these turbines produce energy, and it also discusses the challenges of building the dam.
  • 00:35:00 The Three Gorges Dam is the world's largest hydropower plant and is located in China. The facility is responsible for generating over 2 million kilowatts of electricity, supplying power to 9 provinces and 2 cities, including Shanghai, and has made significant advances in electric transmission technology.
  • 00:40:00 The Three Gorges Dam is the world's largest hydroelectric power plant. When the giant elevator to transport ships is operational in 2016, it will represent one of the most notable engineering achievements in history. The project has taken 17 years and employed tens of thousands of workers. It has cost millions of dollars, but the final product is a remarkable marvel of engineering. The workers of the past, adapting to new challenges and increasing scale, created a hydroelectric plant without rival on Earth. For engineer Quijada Ding, it is the culmination of a lifetime of dedication, and he is very proud of it. This impressive dam is impressive.
