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. The output from each generating set is fed to Transend Networks’ transmission grid.

The Reece power station was constructed as a part of the Pieman River Power Development, between 1974 and 1987.
