Study Tour Of USSR

The 29th Executive Committee Meeting of the International Commission on Large Dams was held in Moscow from June 11th to June 14th, 1962 under the auspices of the Committee for USSR Participation in International Power Conferences. The host country arranged a study tour following the meeting to give participants an opportunity to see the dams and hydroelectric stations completed or currently under construction. The study tour took place from June 15th to June 30th and covered approximately 12,000 miles by plane, bus, and boat. Participants visited some of the largest power installations in the Soviet Union and the world at that time.
