Vidraru Dam - an amazing feat of engineering

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Check out this drone video of Romania's gigantic Vidraru Dam, compliments of contributor Guydrory.  The dam on the  Argeș River in the Transylvania region was completed in 1966.  It has a height of just over 160 meters (around 550 ft.) With an electrical generating capacity of 220 MW, the dam generates over 400 GWH of electrical power per year, a bit less than 1% of Romania's total electricity demand.  The dam took about five years to build, in the process of which nearby Lake Vidaru was created as a reservoir.
