Previous Advisory (Feb 25)

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising that Unit 3 at the Holyrood Generating Station will be taken offline this evening for repair work.

This work is expected to take about six hours and the unit will be back online tomorrow morning. We will advise of any delays or changes.

Unit 1, which was removed from service on February 16 to complete a boiler tube repair, is expected to be back in service this weekend.

Reserve forecasts are healthy and there is no anticipated customer impact as a result of this work.

Hydro’s equipment advisories are part of our commitment to keeping customers informed on the status of the electricity system and system events.
