Nice work on the Think Big article. We've needed an article about Think Big for some time - thanks for providing one. Please keep up the good work. -- Vardion 10:40, 7 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Manapouri_Power_Station[edit]

The bit i edited out mentions Australia, your trying to tell me a power station was built in New Zealand to power something in Oz?

No, Comalco refines the bauxite into alumina in Queensland, then ships the alumina to Bluff. They ship vast amounts of pitch to Bluff too. The pitch gets turned into cathodes made of carbon. The alumina gets put into a "pot" and zapped with electricity which reduces the alumina into aluminium metal, and oxidises the carbon cathodes into carbon dioxide. The Comalco smelter in bluff has 4 pot lines, and uses around 550 Megawatts of power. The 220kV 50Hz AC power is turned into 4V DC power at the smelter, and 280,000 Amps is fed into the pot lines. The conductors are made of solid aluminium about a meter thick and 2 metres high. They generate a huge magnetic field. You can't wear any metal nearby. Once the aluminium is smelted, the ingots get shipped off to Japan (mostly). These days a japanese company owns most of the smelter. The NZ govenment and NZers get next to nothing for the power. A bit of tax revenue from the 800 or so workers at the smelter. Thats about it, as far as I know.
Anyway, the reason Comalco wanted to build Manapouri is they needed cheap electricity for their smelter. They were all set to build the powerstation and flood lakes Manapouri and Te anau too, but ran out of money, and the NZ government had to step in - in 1963.
I do admit the bit you removed was a bit off the track - disconnected from the main theme. It probably should be simplified and tied back to the main story line, explaining this link perhaps. However without the aluminium smelter there would be no powerstation. There's not much call for generation in that part of the country. There are insufficient transmission lines to get the power north, and not enough users of power in southland. So as far as Meridian Energy is concerned, if there was no smelter now, the powerstation would be a stranded asset.

Franz Josef Glacier[edit]

Can you please reference the height info? I understand that the old info wasn't sourced either, but we should try to improve things like that where we can. Cheers. MadMaxDog 10:06, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Working-Class Hero[edit]

Hi, why did you delete the link I put up to Marilyn Waring's cover of Working-Class Hero by John Lennon with a note saying it "had nothing to do with Marilyn Waring"? It's a song recorded by Marilyn Waring and released as a single, how could it have nothing to do with her? Pearce.duncan (talk) 01:01, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
