Muskrat Falls Generating Project

Construction began in 2013 on the 824 megawatt (MW) hydroelectric generating facility at Muskrat Falls on the lower Churchill River, approximately 30 km west of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador. The facility consists of a spillway, two dams and a powerhouse, and will be the second-largest hydroelectric facility in the province when complete.

At the end of 2017, construction of the Muskrat Falls generating facility was 78 per cent complete. First power from the generation project is expected by late fall 2019 with full power by late summer/fall 2020.
