Visit Procedures

Note: Each site is a security zone, and as such the following conditions govern all visits/tours:

  • Guided tours begin on the hour, from 9:00 a.m and end at 3 p.m. each day.
  • Visitors who arrive inside the hour, (eg. 9:15 a.m, 10:36 a.m, 1:07 p.m) would have to wait until the next hour.
  • For security and safety reasons, the Power Plants are normally out of bounds. Certain portions of the plants are therefore to be viewed from a distance.
  • Photographs are not allowed inside and outside the plant.
  • All cellular phones must be switched off within the plant premises.
  • No instruments or weapons are allowed within the plant premises. Offenders will be prosecuted.
  • For their own safety, visitors are advised to comply with all instructions given by the guides.
