Bumbuna (Sierra Leone)
This is one of our pet projects that we have faithfully followed for the past forty years notwithstandings several challenges (including civil war). It comprises a rockfill dam, 88 m high, and a generating plant with a capacity of 50 MW.
Gibe III (Ethiopia)
The design of this record breaking 250 m high RCC dam has proved to be one of the biggest challenges faced by our engineers to date. The hydropower plant with its full capacity of 1870 MW recently came on-line.
Over 200 dams designed
Studio Pietrangeli’s first projects, in the 1960s, were the Legadadi and Busalletta dams (Ethiopia and Italy, respectively).
The innovative technical solutions adopted at that time to solve complex engineering problems started our tradition of continuous innovation and research of the highest professional quality.
Today, after more than five decades of activity, SP has successfully designed over 200 dams of all kind (RCC, rockfill, earthfill, etc) in 35 countries.
Several of our projects are “world records”.
H = 250 m
The Gibe III dam on Omo river (Ethiopia) is the world’s highest Rolled Compacted Concrete (RCC) dam, with a final height of 250 m.
Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam
H = 175 m, L = 1780 m
Grand Ethiopian Renaissance, on the Blue Nile river (Ethiopia), will be the largest RCC dam in the world (1780 m long and 175 m high).
From the initial conceptual phase of a new dam project up to the final monitoring of the works in operation
Studio Pietrangeli offers all the consulting engineering services for the design, supervision of works and monitoring, including investigations, environmental studies, contract documents, etc.
SP has designed dams of all types including arch, gravity, arch-gravity, buttress, earthfill, rockfill with bituminous or concrete facing, RCC and concrete.
