NALCOR ENERGY CONTINUES TESTING LABRADOR ISLAND LINK FROM MUSKRAT FALLS TO SOLDIERS POND AS PART OF ENERGIZATION

May 4th, 2021

Nalcor Energy is continuing to test the Labrador-Island Link (LIL) from Muskrat Falls to Soldiers Pond.

While we do not anticipate any customer impact, when new equipment is brought online there is increased risk. Hydro is monitoring closely and will update customers as required.

Testing began on the LIL in December 2020 and Nalcor is continuing to flow higher levels of electricity across the LIL to the island.

In the event of an equipment trip during this testing, there will be a short impact to customers – called an Under Frequency Load Shedding event. Hydro has sufficient generation online and ready to serve customers, so any outage would be short.
