Reece Hydro Power Station

Reece Power Station is a hydroelectric power station located at the foot of the Reece Dam on Lake Pieman on the West Coast of Tasmania.

Reece Power Station has two turbines, with a combined generating capacity of 231.2 MW of electricity. Water is supplied to the turbine via a half-embedded spiral casing. The generators are the umbrella type with combined thrust and guide bearings mounted below the rotor hubs. A single short shaft is provided to connect to the turbine runner. Draft tube gates are provided for each machine, outside the station. A manually operated riparian valve is provided to control salinity in the river downstream of the dam.
