Construction of the largest dam in Eritrea is nearly completed


Gergera Dam will supply electricity and potable water when completed

Construction of the largest dam in Eritrea is nearly completed


Construction of Gergera Dam, which began in late 2010 near the town of Teramni, is at an 'advanced stage', a government spokesman said on Thursday.

When completed the dam will supply water to the towns of Mendefera, and Dekemhare, as well as provide electricity, the official added.

Built along a gorge, Gergera dam will be the largest cyclopean masonry dam in the country, and will have the capacity of holding 35 million cubic meter of water.

On Monday, Eritrea announced it will build Tekera Dam that will have the capacity to hold 20 million cubic meter of water to supply Asmara and its environs.

Since independence, Eritrea has built more than 300 agriculture and water reservoir dams to ensure food security and alleviate potable water shortages.

  8. Are you serious? They built a huge dam that will increase our food security and provide water and electricity, and you are being negative? You really don't have any positive to say about this dam??!

  9. Agame / Amhara , get your inferior brain out of this and other Eritrean websites. You are just inferior to us in every way, go chat with your own monkey people, you're just an inferior race to us. We're busy engineering more than 300 state of the art irrigation dams and holding our position as the top solar panel manufacturer in the continent.

    Goitom this Zeragito have got gojam walls wrong. It rather looks like the pic below. At the outset I tell you Goitom, I am not Gajame, but a good student of History. The dam is supposed to copy not Gojam but Gonder facilades albeit a mutated form of it. (I know you are Agame Goitom Abraha:), take it easy.

  17. Notice the two * j * in your gojjam. Sorry for mis-spelling it. Thank you for getting a better spelling. Seems you are pretending … as if you do Not know.

    Well it is Not a sinn to know about places. But yours is a bigott and hypocritical head. How on earth then do you spell it better? Well I am Not projecting any kind of blame towards you, for spelling it better. But pretending that you do not know gojam will Not make you a better and cleaner Ertrean, for there is nothing so called….

    But it seems you are Summung up 1 and 1 and 1 to get 2.

    If I know (1) Gojim (+2) and if I am ashamed of being Er***** in this instance (+3) and if Gojam is something you are ashamed to have known or to know that it exists in Ethiopia then I have to go away.

    But the Problem is (1) and (1) and (1) make 3.

    Most Probaly You will not understand.... what I am saying, in straight words you are the one **Pretending** You white washed crumbling wall !!!

  18. You're not Eritrean, you're from Tigray. If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, then it's a Tigrayan pretending to be Eritrean.

    This picture is of Harar walls, which were built by Arabs, not Ethiopians.

    The picture below of the Gondar castles were built by the Portuguese, not Ethiopians.

    The Eritrean dam is being built by Eritreans.

    Dude, no one is copying anyone. Every structure that is composed of masonry units has a facade of interlocking blocks, resulting checker-like patter, a common and ancient universal system of application used for wight distribution. However, this is a reservoir we're talking about, it is simply a wall engineered to sustain the PSI (pounds per square inch) of raging water pressure. This has nothing to do with mimicking Agame/Amhara shack. The magnitude of Agame/Amhara inferiority complex is immeasurable, they go the extra mile to compensate for their pathetic shortcoming by posting images on Eritrean websites. Commenting on Eritrean websites is a big testament of Agame/Amhara inferiority complex. In part, shame on you Madote for not filtering those subhumans out of this website. - Architect & Engineer

  27. Mr. Plagarist Architect and Enginner, will your Medivial looking, slave labour built, ugly wall sustain any water pressure? You say it is a Reservior and why does the title read Eritreas Largest Dam. Pls do some research for us, and enlighten us.

    Be rest assured, everybody who opposes the existing statuesque in Eritrea is ... not Ethiopian. Eritrea needs voices that challenge and not only foxes, sheep or chickens always nodding their head in agreement. Reasons being treacherous self interest, ignorance or fear respectively. I remember at the beginning of ninteen- ninetiess PIA, in one of his Interviews or was it public seminar? said something about scavengers and why they exist … .

    Madote should be appreciated for letting everyone post, it paints a picture of reality the way it is and not shy away from it … as back then when every comment was edited, cut and mutilated.

    Eritrea has successfully piled rocks for 5 years and built a wall. According the project manager -Engeener Wedi Mile, Nakfa graduated in trench building, this wall will be used to store 30 million qubic water.
    Wedi mile is also known as project manager during the building of the none-functional Massawa Airporta

  34. It is very interesting to observe how Fox Out Them what ever his freaking name is trying to hijack Eritrean website. I am sure there are plenty of web-site you can post your bull crap comment.
    The major difference with you is that the Ethiopians are proud to be beggars and not ashamed to do that. The Eritreans are ashamed to beg; they rather die and that is a big, big difference.
    Stop! begging in the Eritrean website.

    Dear Mr. "Out Fox them" a.k.a. Agame,

    Again, the "ugly wall" you're referring to is solely designed as a reservoir / hydro-dam, to feed and provide electricity, this is part of a long term plan of Eritrea, to maintain food security and energy, something Agame/Amhara are not accustomed to. In the meantime, since you're not willing to leave this website peacefully, I am obligated to unleash Madote Management on you.


    Madote Management, please kick this Agame out of this website for good and do take the initiation to weed out Agame/Amhara activities, don't wait for us to inform you.


    Regards.
    Architect & Engineer

    Too sad you start deleting messages. I have not insulted people except I have different opinion than those like Libro Cane who insult people Agame Woyane.... You are becoming with us or against us aka George Bush philosophy. Remember there is black white and gray area. By deleting opinions you might feel you will stop differen opinion than your but trust me you will never stop my opinion. I will never stop saying wrong to wrong things.

    Mr. "Circle-whirl" a.k.a. Agame/Amhara,

    We know you don't have the brain power or the work ethic. So, please get out of this Eritrean website. You don't have to convince us about your inferiority by meddling on our websites. We 100% understand that you're inferior to us and thank you for clarifying that by coming to our website but once again you're not welcome here. Get lost !!!!

    Madote Management, please kick this Agame out of this website for good and do take the initiation to weed out Agame/Amhara activities, don't wait for us to inform you.

  54. According to an engineer very much involved in the construction of the dam, the capacity of Gergera is estimated to hold 90 million cubic meters of water. I visited the almost completed dam on July 22, 2014.
