Why do turbine halls have high ceilings?

Whether it's in a dam
, nuclear power station
, or a converted thermal power station
, the turbine hall of an electricity-generating facility always seems to be a lot taller than the equipment inside requires. I assume there must be a reason for this, given the cost of materials. Is it to dissipate heat, or to serve some other objective?
