Equipment Advisory: Transmission Line Work

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising two transmission lines have been removed from service to complete annual maintenance.

The transmission line from Come By Chance to Western Avalon has been removed from service until October 5. As well, the transmission line from Bay d’Espoir to Stony Brook has  been taken offline until Sept 29.

There is no anticipated impact for customers 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.

All major equipment advisories are posted on our website here.
