China's largest hydropower plant breaks annual output world record
The Three Gorges Dam has set a new record for annual power output. Power generation reached the 103.1-billion-kilowatt-hour mark on November 15, breaking the record set by the Itaipu Dam in South America in 2016, according to an announcement made by the China Three Gorges Corporation. The record has made the plant the world's largest in terms of installed capacity and actual production capacity. The Three Gorges power station ensures power supply and normal operation of many cities and regions, such as Hubei, Zhejiang, and Shanghai.
It has been collapsing for so many years in western media.
@Sutaiwon Khandu Those Indians were so high over a fake news
The video was comparing the operating hours of the 3-Gorges with Brazil's Itaipu the world's second largest power plant in the world. Itaipu has 20 units of 700MW turbines. 3 Gorges has 32 units of 700MW turbines.
This project is amazing, on YouTube fake news we're saying the dam is about to break during the flood in October.
Keep up with the good news
The Three Gorges Dam has 700MWx32 generators inside the dam, and 50,MWx2 generators inside the mountains. The 2 smaller generators provide the power that keep the dam running.
go go go CHINA GO GO GO you did a very very very amazing jobs and do again again
The dam stands firm.
All the haters out there must be heart breaking.
This is the modern China , the PRC . Compare this to the feeble ROC from 1912 to 1949.
It was the most tragic few decades in Chinese history.
This is why ....why i love with China

Brilliant engineering. China is the leader in civil engineering by a long shot.
Long live china from India
Wow thank goodness
The damage they have caused is world record breaking.
Because when it was raining , it was releasing large amounts of water. Probably the turbines were in full use. Making disadvantage into advantage. Awesome
The Three Gorges Dam breaks world record while Indians are still waiting for this dam to break apart.
Is this also the biggest in the world ?

The socioeconomic and environmental benefits brought by the Three Gorge Dam is apparent.
Today, the Dam generated a 100 TWh of electricity. At full power, the Dam reduces coal consumption by 31 million tonnes per year, avoiding 100 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
