John Hart Generating Station Replacement

The project required the design and construction of a replacement generating facility close in proximity to the existing facility, which is the furthest downstream station in the three-station Strathcona-Ladore-John Hart cascading hydroelectric development on the Campbell River. It is approximately 7 km upstream from where the river enters the Strait of Georgia. The station represents 17% of the current total generating capacity on Vancouver Island. It has been in commercial operation since 1947 and is one of the oldest generating facilities in BC Hydro’s hydroelectric system and an important heritage asset on Vancouver Island.
