Ohakuri Hydroelectric Power Station

The Ohakuri Hydroelectric Power Station on the Waikato River, midway between Taupo, Rotorua and Hamilton.

The Ohakuri Power Station was commissioned in 1961. It has a capacity of 112 MW and is operated by Mighty River Power.

Construction of the dam eventually created Lake Ohakuri, which drowned two thirds of the Orakei Korako geothermal area as well as hot springs and wahi tapu (Maori sacred sites) at Te Ohaaki. The submerged area also included two of the world’s largest geysers (Minginui Geyser and Orakei Korako Geyser).
