This is a list of electrical generating stations in Newfoundland and LabradorCanada.
Power your knowledge: Watch and learn about hydroelectric generation in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our generating assets include nine hydroelectric plants, one oil-fired plant, four gas turbines, and 25 diesel plants. We also operate the Exploits hydroelectric plants on behalf of the provincial government and have entered into a of power purchase agreements with non-utility generators to supplement our own generating capacity.
Hydro generation is responsible for maintaining all hydroelectric generation plants on the island:. Service began in The plant produces an average of 2, GWh annually, making it the largest hydroelectric plant on the Island. The two The plant operates at a normal supply level of m under a net head of 51 metres.
The rated flow of The unit, which is equipped with a Francis turbine, was first synchronized in The Plant operates under an average net head of m.
The generating station has a rated capacity of 40 MW with an annual average energy production of GWh. The generating unit at Granite Canal utilizes approximately 37 m of head with a rated plant flow of The unit is equipped with a Kaplan turbine and was first synchronized in A Fish Habitat Compensation Agreement was ed with the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans to ensure proper construction, utilization and long-term viability of the facility.
This hydroelectric generating plant is located near the mouth of Paradise River on the Burin Peninsula.
The unit, which is equipped with a Francis runner, was first synchronized in The project, which operates under a run-of-river philosophy, has a 43 m high concrete arch dam with an overflow spillway, the largest structure of this de in Eastern Canada. Both are single unit plants using horizontal shaft Francis turbine generator units and were originally constructed with above ground wood stave penstocks.
ByThe Snooks Arm plant wood stave penstock had deteriorated and was replaced by an above ground steel penstock. The single unit plant is located on Marble Brook and is supplied with water through a buried polyethelene penstock. The turbine is a horizontal shaft, two cell cross flow machine operating under a net head of 42 m, with de flow of 1.
There are three hydroelectric facilities on the Exploits system, which in total have an electrical generating capacity of 75 MW for the island interconnected grid. As part of the operations of these Assets, Hydro works to protect the Atlantic Salmon run and operation of many fish passages, working closely with partners, including the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Environmental Resource Management Association.
