Re­hab­ili­tation and Heightening of the Cambambe arch dam

The 60 m high Cambambe arch dam in Angola was completed in 1962 and has been operated successfully since then.

The increase of this power capacity and energy production will be achieved with the heightening by 20 m of the existing arch dam. Together with the dam heightening, the flood release system (lateral gated overflow spillway, and orifice spillway) must be updated and adapted to the new layout conditions.

Conceptual design, preliminary design, final design, construction drawings, site assistance. Geological investigations, geology and seismic hazard study, hydrology and water resources management, dam heightening concept development and design, hydraulic structures design (spillway and plunge pool), rock mechanics, dam foundation.
