Workers retired the old display in the visitor’s center at Antelope Valley Station, which was at least 20 years old, with a bright and new one.
Allison Winkler, administrative assistant I at Antelope Valley, says, “It just looks fresh and new compared to the old display.”
The idea for a new display came about when a group from communications went to the Great Plains Synfuels Plant to make updates to their tour center. Nicole Lindseth, multimedia specialist I says, “We went to Dakota Gas to make updates to their display. We ended up going to Antelope Valley and saw their display needed updating too.”
Lindseth says the panels were printed in-house, which saved money. “For us to print the panels in-house, it cost us under $300 for all the panels. The bid we received from an outside source quoted a price of more than $1,200,” Lindseth says.
In addition to the new TVs and information panels, all the pictures in the model room were also updated.
The transformation of Antelope Valley Station visitor’s center came just in time for Basin Electric’s 50th anniversary this year. Lindseth says the option is available for all the other plant sites that need an update. She says the same design would be incorporated to each tour center with customized information for each site.
