The Iron Gate (aka Porţile de Fier and Đerdap) is the largest dam on Danube River. Located between Romania and Serbia, this is one of the Europe's largest Hydroelectric power plants. Its construction started in 1964 as a joint-venture between two communist countries - Romania and Yugoslavia (of which Serbia was part). The dam was completed 20 years later (in 1984), having a total of 16 generators producing 432 MW (megawatt) power in total. The generated hydropower was equally divided between the two countries.
Today, Serbia produces more power annually due to its newer (more efficient) equipment.
- The Serbian power station has 10 generators (total power output 270 MW) producing approx 1,46 TWh per year.
- The Romanian power station has 10 generators (total installed capacity 321 MW) producing approx 1,3 TWh (terawatt-hours) per year.
- Currenty, theIron Gate power plant's total generation capacity is 591 MW.
