Energy Centre in summerWelcome to the Energy Centre

Our Energy Centre mimics what you will find as you work as a power engineer.

It's a tremendous advantage when you are ready to take your first career steps. You will have already experienced shift work. More than that, in our safe lab environment you'll have been part of a shift team. You'll even have turns as shift lead. All under the mentorship of our experienced faculty.

Lakeland's Energy Centre is one of the best equipped and modern steam labs in Canada. Commissioned in 2015, it includes different high pressure boilers including water and fire tube.

An added benefit of our centre is the inclusion of heavy oil operations. Our state-of-the-art once-through steam generator (OTSG) is the only one at a post-secondary institution.  There is a distillation tower to help you learn the oil refinery process.
