Equipment Advisory: Hardwoods gas turbine offline for annual maintenance

Update: Annual maintenance has been completed and the gas turbine is available for service (Aug 31).


July 19, 2016

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising that the gas turbine at the Hardwoods site  is offline for approximately five weeks to complete annual scheduled maintenance.

Generation reserves are sufficient and there is no customer impact as a result of this work.

Hydro’s annual maintenance season generally begins in April when customer electricity demand begins to decline and extends to November in preparation for the winter months. During this time, Hydro maintains, replaces, and upgrades electricity equipment throughout the province. This includes preventative and corrective maintenance work and inspections, as well as larger capital projects.
