With the aim of reducing winter power shortages in Tajikistan and assisting agricultural irrigation efforts, Tajikistan planed to build world’s tallest hyrdo dam in 2011. Recently, an Italian group has signed an agreement for the development of a $1.95bn first phase hydroelectric power project in Tajikistan to include a dam that, at 335m high, will be the tallest in the world.
The first phase, signed with Tajikistan’s state energy firm Rogun Hydropower, will see the 335m-high dam structure constructed using rockfill techniques on the Vakhsh River, in the country’s mountainous Pamir region. Once completed, the Rogun Hydropower Project will include six turbines and produce 3,600MW – as much as three medium-size nuclear power stations, and will double Tajikistan’s energy production. Significantly, the project will also provide spare power for sale to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Drilling anchor bolt is widely used in hydropower station, dam, bridge base, tunneling, mining, railway construction and civil construction in recent years. It is reliable, easy and efficient in the installation and application. Most importantly, self drilling anchor bolt has a very good anchoring effect for the difficult environments, such as the rebuilding of ground subsidence, hole collapse, crack, landslip and other geological disasters. The application of self drilling anchor bolt in the dam built will play a great role to ensure the construction safety and guarantee the construction schedule.
