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, three dams and a powerhouse, and will be the second-largest hydroelectric facility in the province when complete.

First power from Muskrat Falls was achieved in September 2020. The first of four generating units was turned over to operations in December 2020. All four units are forecast to be in service in fall 2021.
