Dartmouth Power Station is a hydroelectric power station at Dartmouth Dam on the Mitta Mitta River in Victoria, Australia. Dartmouth has one turbo generator, with a generating capacity of 180 MW of electricity, the largest single hydroelectric turbine in Australia. It is owned and operated by AGL.
Dartmouth was commissioned in 1981.
The turbine casing and concrete machine block surrounding it were destroyed in 1990 when two steel beams entered the turbine. The station was subsequently re-built and re-commissioned in 1993.
The downstream river flow is controlled by three surge control dams and a regulating pondage. The capacity of this regulating pondage was increased in 2003 to further optimise the power station's generation flexability.
Irrigation water releases can by-pass the power station if necessary, via high level and low level outlets.
