Take a virtual tour of Campbell River’s underground generating station project

Go down to where the action is and get a 360 degree view of all the components of the project

Have you ever wondered what it looks like to be in an underground powerhouse cavern, or stand in an over eight metre in diameter power tunnel?

Are you curious what it feels like to look down into a turbine water inlet?

For the first time, from a desktop computer or smart phone, people can take a 360 virtual tour of the John Hart project construction site.

It’s difficult to visualize the project’s impressive scope with most of the construction happening underground. This virtual tour takes you down to where the action is and allows you to stand next to the workers and get a 360 degree view of all the main components of the project work. It’s a new communications tool for BC Hydro

The pictures were taken in February and March 2017, and the plan is to update the virtual tour about every six months to project completion.

BC Hydro awarded the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project contract to InPower BC, which consists of SNC-Lavalin and its subcontractors – Aecon, Frontier-Kemper, General Electric, and others.
