Mactaquac Dam

The Mactaquac Dam is the second largest hydroelectric plant in Atlantic Canada with a generating capacity of 653 MW, it represents approximately 15% of New Brunswick’s power demand.

In the early 1980’s the concrete at the dam began to exhibit signs of distress, which were attributed to alkali-silica reaction (ASR). Since this discovery, millions of dollars have been spent annually to mitigate the expansion and prolong the service life of the structure.

Attendees will be given an in-depth tour of the dam to observe the six turbines, and learn about the issues that have developed since the discovery of ASR. Attendees will also learn what steps are being taken to mitigate ASR to ensure the dam reaches its design life of 100 years.

Kings Landing

Kings Landing Historical Settlement, located 20 minutes outside of Fredericton, is one of Canada’s premiere tourist attractions. The site boasts 300 acres of original museum houses from the period of 1820-1920, over 70,000 artifacts, and more than 40 different exhibits. Kings Landing tells the story that shaped New Brunswick through settlement, and of the birth of Canada.

The visit will include a tour of the $3.8 million refurbishment of the site’s 19th century dam. The project included a 7-month repair where craftsmen disassembled, restored the 2,000 wooden pieces, and reassembled the wheel.
