The $4-billion (3.2-billion-euro) dam, being built near the country's western border with Sudan, will be Africa's largest when completed, producing 6,000 megawatts - the rough equivalent of six large nuclear reactors. In particular, Egypt had raised the alarm over the dam's reservoir and whether its construction would disrupt the flow of water downstream.
In June, the leaders of Ethiopia and Egypt pledged to resolve their differences peacefully and agreed to take steps to put into effect an agreement, which also includes Sudan, to set up a fund for investing in infrastructure. Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy made a verbal pledge to "secure" Egypt's fair share of Nile during the summit.
The dam is now only half complete, but the government says it is created to churn out 6,000 megawatts (MW) of power on completion.
Construction began in 2011, and two of its 16 turbines are scheduled to start producing power in 2018, Ethiopian authorities announced earlier this year.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
