The Cofferdam's Third Cell Completed!

Each cell forms a part of the cofferdam that will hold water back from the construction site while the new dam is being built. The cofferdam will be 10.6 metres (34.8 feet) in thickness, and is comprised of seven cells in total that are connected, running the width of the existing channel above the dam. Each cell, in general, takes two weeks to construct.
