Maraetai Power Station (N.Z.)

Hydroelectric power station on the Waikato River in the North Island of New Zealand, part of the Waikato hydroelectric power scheme. Comprises two powerhouses (Maraetai I and Maraetai II) that operate as one power station. Construction for Maraetai I began in 1946, but post-war shortages meant that it was not completed and commissioned until 1954. Maraetai II was commissioned in 1971.
