P5 – Tongland Hydro Plant

On Wednesday 29th of February, P5 visited Tongland Hydroelectric Plant to learn about hydroelectric power sources. We were shown around the station and saw the generators in use. We were then taken to the reservoir where we got to walk over the dam’s wall. our tour guide opened the flood gates which showed us the full power of the river. We all had a wonderful time and learned a lot about the construction of dams and how they work.
