Another big move has been made at the John Hart Generating Station.
Crews working at the replacement project shut down Generator 5 as the project nears completion.
BC Hydro spokesperson Stephen Watson says shutting it (Generator 5) down at this time is necessary to commence work inside the substation.
“We’re now at a place where we’re starting to transition from old to new. To do that, the old generation will feed power supply to the existing substation.
In order to do that, we need to shut down some of the existing units.”
Watson says heading into new year, the rest of the generators will be shut down as Hydro aims to complete the project by next fall.
