UPDATE: The timeframe has been extended and the combustion turbine is expected to be offline until June 13th to complete repairs.


May 31 – Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising that the Holyrood Combustion Turbine is offline for approximately 48 hours to complete scheduled repairs and 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.
