Hey everyone, we are planning a special heating plant tour this month with a special guest speaker. Saturday, April 14th we are invited to visit the heating plant at Salisbury Composite High School in Sherwood Park. Salisbury Composite was built in the early 1950’s and has a large central heating and cooling plant. The centerpiece of the power plant is 2 large - 700 HP hot water boilers and 250-ton screw compressor for refrigeration. The main MCC panel was rebuilt in the 1990’s however the panel itself is still original.

We are very pleased to introduce our special guest Mr. Henry Hau, PE. Mr. Henry Hau is a senior technical person with Cenovus Energy, a senior member with the Alberta Institute of Power Engineers and chairman on the Pressure Equipment Sub Council. Mr. Henry Hau will be speaking to the group about new updates to the Power Engineers Regulations in Alberta and how the Pressure Equipment Sub Council has input to changes in the Regulations. This is a must-see presentation for students, operators and chiefs alike.

We will meet at Salisbury High at 11:00 AM on Saturday April 14 and we are hoping to accommodate 25 to 30 attendees. Members and students are welcome to attend. We will start off with a short meeting with Ed Hnytka followed by our special guest presentation and then we are going to have lunch prepared for everyone at the school cafeteria.

RSVP please if you are able to attend. Please invite your colleagues and classmates as they won’t want to miss this valuable presentation by our special guest Mr. Henry Hau.
