The Kariba Dam forms Lake Kariba, which extends for 280 kilometres and is the largest man-made reservoir in the world. At a height of 128 m and with a crest length of 617m, the dam has the capacity of holding 181 billion cubic meters of water. Designed as a double curvature concrete arch dam, the Kariba Dam was constructed across the Zambezi River between 1956 and 1959. Commissioned in 1960, the Dam has been central to regional energy security and economic development ever since.

The reservoir supplies water to two underground hydropower stations with a total capacity of 1830MW generating more than 10,035 GWh of electricity annually. The North Bank Power Station is operated by ZESCO in Zambia and has an installed capacity of 1,080 MW. (Photo: Arne Hoel)
