Equipment Advisory – Holyrood Unit 2 Offline for Annual Maintenance

June 7th, 2015

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising customers that Unit 2 at the Holyrood Thermal Generating Station has been taken offline for annual seasonal maintenance to ensure continued safe and reliable service for customers.

Hydro’s annual maintenance season generally begins in April when customer demand on the system begins to decline and extends to November in preparation for winter. All planned system outages are evaluated to eliminate or minimize potential customer impact.

Generation reserves on Hydro’s system are strong. There are no anticipated customer impacts related to this equipment outage and no customer action is required; however Hydro will provide updates if anything changes.

This advisory is part of Hydro’s commitment to keep customers informed on the status of the electricity system and significant system events.
