The Julius Nyerere Hydroelectric dam, Tanzania, is Africa's largest hydroelectric dam project. The dam is part of Julius Nyerere Hydropower Station planned to have a capacity of 2,115 megawatts and produce 6,307 GWh per annum. The capacity of the dam’s reservoir is 34 billion cubic meters. To construct the dam, the Rufiji river had to be diverted past the main site, a massive undertaking, but an important one to power Tanzania's growing population. Boxer Engineering, in partnership with ACROW MISR, supplied self climbing wall systems for the 9 turbine chambers.
