  1. 1. Dam of Thisavros
  2. 2. Dam of Thisavros The hydroelectric power dam of Thisauros in Paranesti-Nestos river is the biggest dam among Balkan countries. The way along the river has slopes full of oak trees and is known for the shelter, the river provides for certain endangered species.
  3. 3. Dam of Thisavros While the lake that is formed there expands along the old estuary of the river for many km, makes river Nestos seem from above like a huge float river. The waters of river Nestos leave behind giant areas fulled with green getting gently into the waters creating something like tiny fjords. The view is astonishing and the sight undoubtedly amazing.
  4. 4. Dam of Thisavros Advantages The major advantage of every hydroelectric dam is elimination of the cost of fuel. The cost of operating a hydroelectric plant is nearly immune to increases in the cost of fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas or coal, and no imports are needed. Also,the use of a hydroelectric dam reduces the CO2(carbon dioxide)emissions.
  5. 5. Dam of Thisavros Disadvantages Ecosystem damage and loss of land.Hydroelectric power stations that use dams would submerge large areas of land due to the requirement of a reservoir.Large reservoirs required for the operation of hydroelectric power stations result in submersion of extensive areas upstream of the dams, destroying biologically rich and productive lowland and riverine valley forests, marshland and grasslands.
  6. 6. Dam of Thisavros Disadvantages Another disadvantage of hydroelectric dams is the need to relocate the people living where the reservoirs are planned. A hydroelectric dam can reduce CO2 emissions but it produces methane emissions.
  7. 7. Dam of Thisavros Purpose? First of all the most important purpose of the dam is irrigation and hydroelectric power production.The power station is a pumped-storage type which allows it to not only generate power but the turbines can reverse and pump water back into the reservoir.
  8. 8. Dam of Thisavros Sports/Visiting Due to the fact this water dam is a renewable energy site,students are visiting it every year.Some of them are also trying extreme sports like rafting.If you want,you can go closer to the dam but you are going to need a special vehicle.
  9. 9. Dam of Thisavros Animals/Plants There are many animals and plants near this water dam like deers,squirels,birds and different kinds of fish.
