Project Overview
The new Assiut Barrage on the Nile will replace an existing dam dating back to the early 20th century.
The new dam will have four 8 MW turbines, with double locks to allow navigation on the Nile and is designed to maintain a head of 4 meters to ensure discharge of a minimum 445 m3/s flow into the Ibrahimia Canal to irrigate nearly 700,000 hectares of land between the dam and Cairo.
