Waneta Dam Expansion Project

The Waneta Dam Expansion Project will add generating capacity to the existing Waneta Dam south of Trail, BC with the construction of two infeed tunnels, powerhouse and tailrace.
Castlegar Ready Mix, a subsidiary of Terus Construction, is supplying ready mix concrete and shotcrete for the construction of the new powerhouse from a portable concrete batch plant.
This project is characterized by a continuous high resource demand—of crew, equipment and aggregate. A further challenge facing this year-round project is the need to maintain temperature control of the delivered concrete within a tight temperature range despite heat and low ambient temperatures in summer and winter.
