Event description

Description

Join us for a guided tour of the Portlands Energy Centre, a 550MW natural gas electrical generating station located on the Toronto waterfront. This tour will provide an inside glimpse into the operation of a combined cycle power plant that is unique in structure. Unlike other combined cycle facilities, all equipment at this facility is housed indoors limiting exposure to extreme weather conditions and reducing noise to surrounding neighbors. This tour will also include a visit to an onsite water treatment plant. All participants will be required to complete a brief safety orientation before starting. Safety equipment (ear plugs, hardhats, reflector vests, etc.) will be provided at site. Arrive early and allow yourself explore the surrounding green space before the sun sets!
