The Leibis-Lichte Dam is a 102.5-metre-tall dam in the German state of Thuringia in the Thuringian Highland. The dam was completed in 2005 to impound the River Lichte, between the Lichte municipality section Geiersthal and Unterweissbach. To that particular storage reservoir belongs the Deesbach Forebay . The name of the dam, “Leibis-Lichte Dam” was derived from the close proximity to the municipalities of Leibis and Lichte, as well as from the Lichte River as being the main inlet.
Inside the formwork, heavy equipment was used to spread and compact the large quantities of concrete. Mini excavators and graders put nearly 2,000 cubic metres of concrete each day into the formwork blocks. Giant cable cranes, reaching over the valley, moved the concrete across the site, with the transport containers holding up to 6 cubic metres of concrete.
