Mirim Barrage

Date: 30/06/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

The Mirim Barrage is a comprehensive hydraulic structure built across the Taedong River, the first of its kind in the DPRK.

It was built in a short period of one year and a half from October Juche 67 (1978).

Over the past four decades, it has played a big role in developing different fields of the national economy, including the agricultural irrigation system, water transport and electricity generation, and protecting Pyongyang Municipality from flood damage, etc.

The Mirim Barrage Managing Station has established an integrated management system to ensure water control on a high IT and scientific level based on the real-time data transfer system and automatic floodgate control system by means of computer network.

It improved the traffic capacity of vessels by realizing the automatic control of lock chamber operation.

After its construction, the world-leading West Sea Barrage and Ponghwa, Songchon and Sunchon barrages appeared one after another along the Taedong River.
