Public Advisory: Testing tomorrow on Labrador Island Link

March 5th, 2024

Update

The testing that took place today on the Labrador Island Link was successfully completed with no impact to customers. As always, we appreciate your patience as we work to strengthen our electricity system.


Original Advisory:

On March 5, 2024, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro will be conducting a series of tests on the Labrador Island Link, our longest transmission line that brings power from the Muskrat Falls plant in Labrador to the Soldier’s Pond terminal station on the island.

Testing is scheduled to take place from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and during this time, there is an increased risk of customer impact. If there is a power interruption, we are prepared and have supply available to restore customers quickly (typically under 30 minutes). We’ll be monitoring the system closely and will keep customers informed if issues arise. Updates will be posted to our website, Facebook and Twitter.

We appreciate your patience as we work to strengthen our electricity system. We know you are counting on us to provide safe, reliable energy and we take that responsibility seriously.
