Churchill Falls is a waterfall named after former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. They are 245 ft (75 m) high, located on the Churchill River (before 1965 the Hamilton River, the falls being named Grand Falls) in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.4 mi (6.4 km) above the falls, the Churchill River narrowed to 200 ft (61 m) and negotiated a series of rapids before dropping into MacLean Canyon, from which sheer cliffs rise several hundred feet on either side.

  • Churchill Falls is a waterfall named after former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. They are 245 ft (75 m) high, located on the Churchill River (before 1965 the Hamilton River, the falls being named Grand Falls) in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.4 mi (6.4 km) above the falls, the Churchill River narrowed to 200 ft (61 m) and negotiated a series of rapids before dropping into MacLean Canyon, from which sheer cliffs rise several hundred feet on either side. The river flowed 12 mi (19 km) through the canyon over a series of rapids. The total drop from the rapids above the main falls to the end of MacLean Canyon is 1,038 ft (316 m).Since 1970, the waters of the Churchill River have been diverted into the nearby Churchill Falls hydroelectric power station. Today water flows down the falls less than once a decade, during spring thaw or periods of exceptional rains. The Churchill Falls power station has the third largest hydroelectric-generating capacity in North America (5,428 MW or 7,279,000 hp installed, expandable to about 6,300 MW or 8,400,000 hp) and is also the second largest underground power station in the world, after the Robert-Bourassa generating station in northern Quebec.
  • Die Churchill Falls sind Wasserfälle in der kanadischen Provinz Neufundland und Labrador. Sie befinden sich am Churchill River im Südwesten der Region Labrador und sind nach dem britischen Premierminister Winston Churchill benannt. Die Wasserfälle sind Namensgeber des benachbarten Wasserkraftwerks Churchill Falls.
  • Las cascadas Churchill (en inglés: 'Churchill Falls') son unas cascadas que se llaman así por el antiguo Primer ministro del Reino Unido Winston Churchill. Tienen 75 m de alto y se localizan en el río Churchill, en la provincia de Terranova y Labrador, Canadá. A 6,4 km por encima de las cascadas, el río Churchill se estrecha hasta 61 metros y negocia una serie de rápidos antes de caer al cañón MacLean, del que acantilados se alzan varios cientos de pies a ambos lados. El río fluye 19 km a través del cañón a lo largo de una serie de rápidos. La caída total de los rápidos sobre las cascadas principales al final del cañón de MacLean es de 316 metros.Desde 1970, las aguas del río Churchill han sido apartadas hacia la cercana central hidroeléctrica de Churchill Falls. Hoy el agua fluye hacia abajo en la cascada menos de una vez cada década, durante el deshielo primaveral o en períodos de lluvias excepcionales. La central eléctrica de Churchill Falls tiene la segunda capacidad de generar energía hidroeléctrica de Norteamérica, con 5.428 megavatios instalada, que puede ampliarse hasya los 6.300 megavatios y también es la segunda en tamaño de central eléctrica subterránea después de la estación generadora Robert-Bourassa en Quebec septentrional.Churchill Falls fueron exploradas por vez primera por los europeos en el año 1839 por John McLean, un comerciante de la Compañía de la bahía de Hudson. MacLean llamó "Hamilton" al río, por el gobernador de Terranova, Sir Charles Hamilton. Las cascadas fueron conocidas como Grand Falls hasta 1965 cuando ambos nombres se cambiaron por río Churchill y Churchill Falls para honrar al anterior Primer Ministro británico, Sir Winston Churchill.
  • Les chutes Churchill sont des chutes d'une hauteur de 75 mètres situées sur le cours supérieur du fleuve Churchill à Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador, Canada. Elles sont nommées en l'honneur de l'ancien Premier ministre britannique Winston Churchill.
  • De waterkrachtcentrale Churchill Falls ligt in de Churchill in Newfoundland en Labrador. Ondergronds staan 11 turbines opgesteld met een totaal vermogen van 5.428 MW. Het is de op een na grootste centrale van zijn soort in Canada, na de waterkrachtcentrale Robert-Bourassa in de La Grande met een capaciteit van ruim 5.600 MW. De centrale kwam in gebruik tussen 1971 en 1974. De twee eigenaars van de centrale zijn Nalcor Energy, met 65,8% van de aandelen en Hydro-Quebec (34,2%).
  • Че́рчилл — водопад высотой 75 м на реке Черчилл в провинции Канады Ньюфаундленд и Лабрадор. После сооружения в 1971 году гидроэлектростанции Черчилл-Фолс, река была полностью отведена для производства электроэнергии. По состоянию на 2009 год водопад Черчилля не существует как водопад большее время года.Река, водопад и ГЭС названы в честь британского премьер-министра У. Черчилля.
