Record shipping throughput for Three Gorges Dam

11 December 2013
The throughput of the five-tier ship locks of the Three Gorges Dam will reach a record high this year, according to Ji Yujian, head of the Three Gorges Navigation Administration.

By 7 December, the ship locks’ throughput exceeded 100m tonnes for the first time since 2011.
So far this year, 40,848 cargo ships have passed through the ship locks along with 2,461 passenger vessels, with a daily throughput of 300,000 tonnes.

The Three Gorges project was designed to generate electricity, control floods by storing excess water and promote the river's shipping capacity.
