New power engineering facility opens at Northern Lakes College

March 3, 2015

Alberta’s Northern Lakes College recently celebrated the grand opening of the new Shell Canada Power Engineering and Technology Centre. The new facility will be used by students in the power engineering program at Northern Lakes and local high school students in dual credit programs, and will offer flexible hours to accommodate students who must work or study during the day. “Funding educational institutions and initiatives across the country is a key area of focus of our social investment program,” says Ginette MacIsaac, Shell’s Carmon Creek Operations Manager. “As a longtime supporter of Northern Lakes College, we are proud to lend Shell’s name to a facility which will help to meet an important need for power engineers across the province.” Support for the new centre came from the Town of Peace River, Northern Sunrise County, industry partners Shell Canada and Penn West Exploration, and Canada’s Western Economic Diversification fund. The centre’s first intake of students began last month. Northern Lakes News Release
