Project: Goreway Generating Station

Goreway Generating Station

Equipment Used:

Goreway Station is a natural gas-powered electrical generating facility with a power output of 874MW in Brampton, Ontario. Essential to the power production, a 356 ton steam generator and a 136 ton steam turbine are housed more than sixty-five feet above ground. Tasked with installing these two large components, Western developed a custom lifting apparatus using strand jack technology and gantry jacks. Since the Goreway Station project, Western has used similar rigging arrangements for many electrical generating facilities across Ontario.
