York Haven Hydroelectric Plant Tour

03:00 PM - 05:00 PM Eastern Standard Time



Join your fellow PAEP and WTS Central Pennsylvania Chapter members on a unique tour of the York Haven Dam and Hydroelectric Plant, operated by Olympus Power, on the Susquehanna River south of Harrisburg. When completed in 1904, it was the third largest in the world. It has 13 horizontal generators and 7 vertical generators in the power house. The vertical units use one of the first Kaplan Turbines used in the United States, which is listed as a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.

Registration will be on a first-come-first serve basis with a limit of 25 participants. The number of participants is limited to ensure a safe and high quality tour experience. There will be no registration fee for the event sponsored by Olympus Power, PAEP Central Section, and WTS. Donations to the PAEP and WTS Scholarship Funds are welcome. 
The tour group will assemble in the parking lot outside the plant's main gate and enter the plant as a group. Please be at the main gate at 3:00 p.m. 
Since we need to know in advance the number of attendees, please RSVP to JT Graupensperger at jgraupensperger@pennoni.com by Monday, April 20, 2015.  Click the link below to view the flyer for more information and driving directions.
