Clyde Hydro Power Station

The Clyde Power Station, on the Clutha River near the town of Clyde, is New Zealand's third largest hydroelectric power station. It was commissioned in 1992 and is owned and operated by Contact Energy.

The power station has four 120 MW turbines (for a total of 480 MW),. The dam is built such that two further penstocks and turbines can be installed. However, during construction, the adjacent rock was discovered to be microfractured, because of an earthquake fault running underneath the dam site. The dam was redesigned, losing a sluice channel and cutting its generation capacity from 612 MW to 432 MW.
