Students Tour Amoskeag (c. 1970s)
Who doesn’t want to learn how a power plant works? Here, hydro employee Frank Bellefeuille is pointing out the instrumentation and controls at Amoskeag Hydro Station. The 17.5 MW renewable plant—located in Manchester’s millyard—continues to be a popular destination for students today.
2012-09-07: Thanks to Mark and Wendy Vattes for updating us with the employee’s name. According to Mark, “My Dad, John Vattes, a PSNH retiree, confirmed that the PSNH employee pictured in the photograph is Joseph Francis “Frank” Bellefeuille. My Dad worked at the Amoskeag Hydro in the 1960s and early 1970s with Frank, who is also my Mom’s uncle.”
