Engineering, project delivery, and professional services firm Hatch celebrated its centennial in the field of hydropower. This occasion marked 100 years since H.G. Acres and Company was established in 1924. Acres joined Hatch in 2004 and since then, Hatch has continued the legacy as a leading force in the hydropower industry.

An industry event was at the historic Niagara Parks Power Station in Niagara Falls, Ont. The hydroelectric power generation plant, which is more than 115 years old, has recently undergone a remarkable transformation, turning it into an immersive experience for visitors.

Hatch was joined by a number of dignitaries: Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati; Rudy Cuzzetto, parliamentary assistant to the Ontario Minister of Energy; Beth Dennahower from the office of Tony Baldinelli, MP for Niagara Falls; and David Adames, CEO of Niagara Parks Commission.
