John Hart Generating Station Replacement
After 66 years, it’s time for an upgrade
The John Hart Generating Station, located within the city of Campbell River, has been operating since 1947. To ensure it continues to deliver clean, reliable energy for years to come, the facility is being modernized.
BC Hydro’s early site preparation works are nearing completion. In November 2013, BC Hydro announced SNC-Lavalin Inc. is the preferred general contractor, and that we anticipate signing the contract in early 2014. From there, they will mobilize to design and build the project. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
