I support this as a History Milestone, and the documentation gives a clear explanation and justification. However, it does not appear to me in the category of an 'invention' or something which was a technological or scientific 'advance'. It used what seems to be known technology for hydro-electric power generation. Its significance, as made clear in a part of the supporting documentation, was the impact it had on bringing electricity and inexpensive power supplies to Uruguay, and hence supporting the national development. It was, of course, also an achievement of the Uruguay engineers in having to tackle such a large project. Maybe some adjustment of the wording of the Citation to emphasise the above would be an improvement? Tony Davies
