Posted on April 24, 2009 by under Leadership, Things to Do.    

We had the opportunity to tour Jeffrey Energy Center in Saint Marys, Kansas yesterday. Here are some photo highlights:

Not only did we get to tour the power plant (we got to see Unit 3 up close and personal), but we also had the chance to tour the grounds (we got to watch as train cars filled with coal were emptied) and also play with the simulator.

Below you’ll see the monstrosity known as “The Tiger.” It is the biggest truck of its kind I have ever seen. Check out the tires on that thing!

Back in the simulation room, Lila, Roger and Jimmy got to push some buttons.

It was a long day, but definitely informative and, surprisingly, a lot of fun!
