Today I had a very fun and interesting day. I went on a field excursion to the hydropower plant located in afobakka, Suriname. This was the first part of this excursion. I learned that the dam, also called Stuwdam, was constructed in 1965 and thus also the reservoir but the reservoir didn't reach optimal working level until 1971. In the period between 1965 and 1971 we were already generating power but at a very low rating. After 1971 we got the full power for that period or time.
Here below I have a picture that was taken during the construction of the Stuwdam. Hopefully I'll have mote information for you guys after the second field excursion.
