This is the first and northernmost of four power plant sections. All of the power plant sections have similar layouts, including a large open area in the middle with two giant turbines, with a middle and top tier of catwalks, and work areas along the walls and the floor forming the bottom of three tiers. Each tier has at least two sets of stairs connecting to the next tier up or down. Head engineer Mike Lawson can be found in this power plant.
Hoover Dam power plant 01 appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Hoover Dam power plants are based on the power plants of the real world Hoover Dam. The equivalents in-game are nearly identical, from the appearance of the turbines themselves to the layout of the room's structure, equipment, and catwalks. The only notable difference being in the real world, there are in total 17 main turbines and in-game there are only 8.
