Equipment Advisory – Unit 7 Bay d’Espoir

June 30 – Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising that Unit 7 at the Bay d’Espoir Hydroelectric Plant is offline for approximately 8 weeks to complete annual 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.
