      The dam design and consulting company Coyne et Bellier was founded as Andre Coyne et Jean Bellier (or ACJB) in by the French dam designer Andre Coyne (). 2 Coyne established the company after his retirement from the civil service where he had already gained a worldwide reputation as a dam designer. Jean Bellier was Coyne's son-in-law. The decline in the pace of dam building over the past two decades has been equally dramatic, especially in North America and Europe where most technically attractive sites are already developed. The average large dam today is about 35 years old. The top five dam-building countries account for nearly 80% of all large dams worldwide.

The hydroelectric station at Kafue, in Zambia, was about to start. The same annual report showed that AAC’s coal sales during that year had dropped by 10% to a low of 3 Mt.

In addition, the chairman expected a further drop in coal sales to Zambia when the road lift to Livingstone ended and the Zambia Siankandobe Colliery came into production.

The spillway, also on the left bank, is 80 meters wide and will have a discharge capacity of 15, cms. Excavation Notes: Excavation work for the project includes open pit excavation of more than 14 mil-lion cubic meters of material for the river diversion, construction of the dam and power station, spillway, and other works.

Abstract. The African continent has many very large rivers with extensive floodplains, large numbers of both natural and man-made lakes with well-developed littoral zones, some of the largest swamp complexes in the world, and vast areas of land which are seasonally flooded or waterlogged but hydrologically isolated from the main drainage by: 1.

These are blocked by 2 southern faults, the Kunyere and the Thalamakane, which redirect the Delta's myriad channels.

The Thalamakane Fault acts as a mile-long natural dam: Here the channels abruptly change direction and join to form one river, the Boteti, which flows eastwards through a break in the fault towards the Makgadikgadi Pan.

The Kafue Flats are home to about one million people and provide a rich inland fishery, habitat for an array of unique wildlife, and the means for hydroelectricity production.

The Flats falls between two dams: Upstream to the west (not visible here) is the Izhi-tezhi, and downstream (middle right of the images) is the Kafue Gorge dam. Since the. Simulation of a dam breach and the resulting flood using a mathematical model is a crucial element in developing an emergency action plan.
