Information

This is a concrete surface station initially built with four 137.5 MW generating units giving a total of 550 MW. Completed in 1969 M2 lacks the architectural flair of the 950 MW M1 with which it operates in tandem. Using the same water falling through a head of 260 m as opposed to 460 m at M1, M2 has a lower output as the water has less potential energy. Turbine upgrades and rerating now have 3 units at 128 MW and unit 14 at 150 MW.
