ORGANISED by YES Cork Region

About the event

Marked as one of the Engineering Milestones of the 20th Century, our friends in ESB GWM have agreed to host a tour of the Ardnacrusha Hydro station. The tour will take attendees through the history of the inception of hydroelectric power, to the plant's electrification in 1927 and all the way to the day-to-day running of the 86 MW Hydro station.

The tour will close with a short presentation on the activities of the Cork Young Engineers society.

There is ample car parking at the station and PPE will be provided.

Please note that places are limited so this tour is restricted to members of Engineers Ireland.


Admission is free and all are welcome. Advance booking is required and should be made using the link provided and password HYDRO. Those not registered will not be admitted.
