The Iron Gate Dam's construction started in 1964 as a joint venture between both communist countries - Romania and Yugoslavia (of which Serbia was part until 1992). When completed in 1984, the Dam's both stations had a total of 16 generators producing 432 MW (megawatt) power in total. The generated hydropower back then was equally divided between both 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.

Currently, the Iron Gate powerplant's total generation capacity is 591 MW.
