Fifteen SCE engineering students received a tour of the largest coal-fired generating power plant in Missouri, the KCP&L Iatan Power Plants, consisting of two power stations, Iatan Unit 1 and Iatan Unit 2.
Prior to a tour of the facilities, the civil, mechanical and electrical engineering students on the tour were provided a one-hour briefing of the operations at Iatan. Students then donned hardhats, safety googles and ear plugs for an extensive tour. The UMKC Missouri Society of Professional Engineers (MSPE) student chapter organized the tour. SCE’s current chapter president is Sean Rivers.
