Artist's Description

The Gordon Dam (also known as Gordon River Dam), is a double curvature arch dam on the Gordon River in the (Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park) Tasmania, Australia. The dam has a length of 192 m (630 ft), and a height of 140 m (459 ft), making it the tallest dam in Tasmania and the fifth-tallest in Australia.
Water from the dam drops 183 m (600 ft) underground into its power station, where three turbines of 144 MW generates up to 432 MW of power, covering about 13% of the electricity demand of Tasmania. The first two turbines were commissioned in 1978, before the third was commissioned a decade later in 1988.
