Karnataka Garura Dam
Official name : Gurara Dam
Location : Kaduna
This Gurara Dam is earth fill-rock-filled dam with 8.1 m3 of embankment, 52.5m great and 3.1km lengthy. The makes a pond with place of 60 km2. On right financial institution of river is 1.16km canal with 43m great consumption structure prepared with gas valves that exchanges raw water via 74kms lengthy pipeline of 2m size to Abuja. In centre of this dam, a 51m great consumption structure prepared with gas valves gives accessibility a lower dual tangible gateway – the end outlet –to a higher energy collection shifting water to energy home.
The spillway is located on remaining financial institution at advantage and comprises in 32,000m3 tangible covered ogee and bumpy route – of 2,515m3/second water release, therefore guaranteeing the dam protection as in cases of remarkable stream overflow.
The energy home, located at downstream toes of dam, is prepared with 4 X 10 Super H generators and all necessary devices – butterfly valves, transformers, alternators, control room, switchyard – for development of the hydro-electric energy. The power would be moved to commercial Perhaps the towns of Kaduna through 142 km lengthy transmitting range.
The Gurara Dam this water Venture is multi-purpose project of water, wave power, watering and additional uses. It is regarded as Nigeria’s biggest and innovator water exchange plan.
It includes a large dam, and 74kma canal through Kaduna as well as Usuma sinks of the Kaduna State as well as Govt Investment Area (FCT). The dam has been designed on Gurara stream near to Abuja, the main town of Nigeria.
The objective of this project is improving use of Gurara stream by saving, managing and managing the circulation of stream and main prosperous. This will impact the distribution of specified amounts water to Specific Store Point for FCT water.
Effect of the Project
These distribution techniques would be used to produce 33 MW and 200 MW of the hydro-electric energy to feed in the nationwide lines. The project aspirations are to create least 29,000 hectare of irrigable area downstream of this dam.
It is a Rock fill Dam and have main clay-based primary, 52m great, 2,000m long; volume: 4,000,000m³; Horizontal Spillway (Q= 4,100 m³/s)• 74 km lengthy Conveyance Metal Direction, diameter: 2m; highest possible circulation rate: 14m³/s
• Power place (4 x 10 MW)
• Water exchange capacity: 14 m³/s
