Equipment Advisory: Holyrood Combustion Turbine (Updated)

November 4th, 2016

Update – November 18 – The CT work  has been completed and the unit is now fully available for service.

Previous Advisory –

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising that the gas turbine at Holyrood is offline until November 18 to complete 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.
