Foundation Spring Support

Turbine Generator


Clover Bar Generating Station 1969 was the first Power Plant in North America to install a spring supported concrete "Table" foundation

The pedestal constructed of concrete posts and beams supported this table. Between the pedesal and table were 126 specially designed springs.

this type of spring support design greatly reduces the amount of vibration associated with large rotational equipment

Hours of operation 2021

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty surrounding the novel corona virus global pandemic, the EPHF museum will remain closed until Alberta Health Services restrictions are eased.  At this point, the best we can hope for is to be open for the 2021 LWAS Fall Provincial Tractor Pull and Harvest, tentatively scheduled for Sept 11, 2021. Please check back for further updates, as the Covid 19 situation is constantly in flux.

We are located on the grounds of the Leduc West Antique Museum. Travel 5 miles west of Leduc on Highway 39. Go north on Range Road 260 (Cohne Dale Road) for about a mile and the museum will be on your right.
