This embankment dam has an average yearly energy production of 2100 GWh. The yearly required energy for pumping purposes is around 370 GWh.
This dam collects melting water from the following mountains of the Pennine Alps: Mont Blanc de Cheilon (3870 m), Grand Combin (4314 m), Dent Blanche (4357 m), Cervin (4477 m), Mischabel (4545 m) and Mont Rose (4634 m).
When full, the dam's lake holds around 400 million m³ of water.
6 million m³ of concrete were poured in the dam's construction.
Upon completion, this was the world's highest gravity dam.
