Construction Activities

Construction activities have significantly progressed across the province on the generating facility in Labrador and on the more than 1,600 km of transmission lines and associated infrastructure between Churchill Falls and Soldiers Pond. 

Since construction started on the Muskrat Falls Project in 2012, thousands of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have brought their skills and experience to our provincial energy project.  Through the hard work and dedication of thousands of skilled men and women from across our province and throughout Canada, we achieved many important milestones in 2018.

2018: A Year of Progress & Achievements

Through the hard work and dedication of thousands of skilled men and women from across our province and throughout Canada, we achieved many important milestones in 2018.

In June, history was made with the flow of power from the Churchill Falls Generating Station across our newly constructed transmission system to the island. We are continuing commissioning and testing these transmission assets while bringing power not required in Labrador to electricity customers on the island this winter.

At the Muskrat Falls generating site, the final concrete was placed on the third and final dam required for the facility. In the powerhouse, our teams started the assembly and installation of the massive turbine and generator for the first of four units. The work our teams completed on the generation project last year moves us closer to delivering first power in 2019.
