WIE: Site Visit to The Astoria Generating Station

Past Event

October 11, 2016

6:00 am - 8:00 am

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy’s Women in Energy program for a tour of The Astoria Generating Station. The Astoria Generating Station has been a hub of energy production in New York City since the late 1800’s. You will see approximately 1000 MW of gas and oil fired Rankine cycle electric generating units. These units account for roughly 9% of NYC electric generating capacity. The tour will include a view of the boilers and turbines, the control room and the roof (weather permitting).  The tour will be led by one of the plant’s engineers. There will be a safety briefing and a plant overview before entering the plant itself. This is an industrial facility, hard hats and ear and eye protection will be provided. Please wear long sleeves, closed-toe shoes, and no heels. To get the most out of the visit, please read more about the company on their website: The Astoria Generating Station.
