ADVISORY: Labrador West planned outages on June 18 and September 17

May 9th, 2023

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is advising customers in Labrador West of two planned power outages.

The first is scheduled for:

Sunday, June 18, 2023 from 7AM to 7PM.

This will affect all customers in Labrador City, Wabush and surrounding areas (including IOC and Tacora Resources). The outage is required in order for Hydro to perform critical annual maintenance and equipment upgrades at the Wabush terminal station, and Hydro will also utilize this time for work within the distribution system serving Labrador West.

A second planned outage for this work is currently scheduled for Sunday, September 17 from 7AM to 7PM. Details will be provided on Hydro’s website, Facebook and Twitter and shared with customers.

We understand the impact that these interruptions have on customers and we thank you for your understanding as we complete this essential work on the electricity system to ensure continued reliability for Labrador West. Hydro’s annual maintenance season generally begins in spring, when electricity demand starts to decline, and extends to November in preparation for winter, and it is critical to ensuring necessary maintenance work is completed.
