Cold, bright and busy — work continues 24 hours, seven days a week at the Keeyask Project site. When complete, the generating station will add 695 megawatts of capacity to supply our customers with reliable, renewable energy for centuries to come.
Two men work on the transformers in the switchyard next to G.M. Shrum Generating Station back in the 1960s.
A pretty mediocre photo of a pretty generating station.
Low winter sun at Keeyask. 🌅 Though it’s sometimes as cold in Winnipeg as it is in Gillam, living in the south can make you forget how “arctic” northern Manitoba is. Staff at Keeyask are working day and night, snow and shine to turn this remote construction site into a generating station that’ll last a century or more.
@dronehikers took this incredible shot flying high above Hydro’s Seven Sisters Generating Station, the largest generating station on the Winnipeg River. Some parts of the station are over 89 years old and upkeep is an ongoing task, but the station still adds 165 MW of power to our overall capacity. Seven Sisters is only about 90 km from Winnipeg. Day trip, anyone? 🚙
The first of seven draft tube liners went in this week at Keeyask Generating Station. Here’s a slideshow of the process. Draft tube liners are giant steel pipes that separate the concrete structures from the water that flows through them – the liners help prevent erosion to the concrete. Thanks to Keeyask’s Jason Forman for sending these in.
