Gibe III Dam in Ethiopia. Supply and installation of monitoring instrumentation.
Gilgel Gibe III is a dam, currently nearing completion, about 243m high in RCC (Roller Compacted Concrete). Once completed, the dam will be connected to a hydroelectric plant on the Omo River and will represent the largest hydroelectric plant in Africa.
The Gibe III project is part of a wider realization: the plant, in fact, is the third of the Gibe-Omo waterfall which includes Gilgel Gibe I and Gilgel Gibe II, already operational upstream, and provides for the construction of the Gibe plants downstream. IV and Gibe V.
In 2011 Pizzi Instruments received an important order from the manufacturing company for the supply and installation of the monitoring instrumentation.
The installed instrumentation was purposely made by Pizzi Instruments thanks to the long experience acquired in geotechnical and structural monitoring, adopting innovative construction details to ensure reliable and long-lasting functionality.
The first supply began in July 2011, continuing successfully until 2016.
