BC Works families get to visit Kemano

The first of two family days being held

Kemano Power Operations Team members were invited to bring their families along for a tour of the power plant on Saturday, March 23.

The team members and their families boarded a boat that transports staff from Kitimat to Kemano for their week-long shifts.

The group were fortunate enough to have calm sailing conditions and were treated to a display by a large pod of porpoises in the Douglas Channel.

On arrival the family members were given a talk about BC Works power operations, from when the water is transported by tunnel from the Nechako Reservoir to Kemano, where electricity is generated and then sent to the smelter in Kitimat.

They were also given an overview of the completion of the second tunnel, the T2 project.

The team then took pride in showing their families through the powerhouse and Kemano Village.

The tour concluded with an incredible cruise back to Kitimat, with brilliant sunshine and calm conditions.

This is the first of two family days that were planned by BC Works.
