As part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month 2017, the APEGBC Okanagan Branch has organized a tour of the Tolko Kelowna Powerhouse Co-Generation plant. Please read below for details.

The Tolko Kelowna Powerhouse Co-Generation plant is currently in operation. The plant normally produces about 4.2 MW and sometimes up to 7.2 MW of electrical power output, and approximately 20 MW of thermal capacity. A steam turbine connected to a generator produces the electricity. The steam turbine inlet conditions have the steam at about 400 psi and 580°F, with a steam flow of about 80,000 to 100,000 lbm/hr.  View website >

This event is part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM); an annual celebration of engineering and geoscience across Canada. The goal of this event is to promote the awareness of the engineering and geoscience professions, showcase career choices, and the many ways in which engineering and geoscience relate to our everyday life. More NEGM branch events are listed on apeg.bc.ca/negm-branch-events.
