The Xiluodu Dam is a hydroelectric dam project on the Jinsha River, a tributary of the Yangtze River in China.
Dams, Future Locations
In early 2005, the government announced that construction had been halted due to a lack of environmental impact studies. If completed, the Xiluodu Dam will be the third largest dam in the world and a key component of the Jinsha project. The total generating capacity will be 12,600 MW.
