Itaipu Dam in Brazil and Paraguay. In 2013 the hydroelectric power plant generated a record 98.6 TWh, supplying approximately 75% of the electricity consumed by Paraguay and 17% of that consumed by Brazil. You can buy my Itaipu Dam stock photo in Shutterstock!
The plant operated by Genesis Energy supplies 20 percent of country’s power needs.
While hitchhiking in Norway we casually noticed this steel mill while walking around the town of Odda. It turned out that gate was open and anyone was able to enter and walk around the industrial grounds. It must have been closed and abandoned not so long ago.
There is some beauty in concrete industrial structures. Pictured here: Marchtrenk hydroelectric power plant in Austria.
