In 1935, a joint venture including Bechtel completed the iconic Hoover Dam on time and under budget, thus beginning our long history in hydroelectric power.
We have designed or installed 50 hydroelectric plants that produce more than 37,600 megawatts of hydropower. That is equivalent to 80 percent of the UK's entire power demand.
Currently, we are building the Keeyask Generating Station on the Nelson River, Canada’s fourth-longest river. This past summer, the volume of water at Keeyask totaled some 212,000 cubic feet (6,000 cubic meters) per second—more than twice the flow of Niagara Falls.
