H2O Power L.P. is currently planning to overhaul their generators located at Fort Frances.
The schedule is to start with Unit 1 August 27, 2016. The expectation is the 2nd unit will start October 17, and the 3rd unit November 28th, 2016. With units returning to service and additional units being removed from service, there will be ongoing outages with up to 3 units unavailable at a time. The majority of the outage time will have 2 units unavailable concurrently.
From the middle of April until the end of June, there will be no more than 2 units unavailable during the normal freshet period. Once a unit is disassembled, it will not be available until the completion of the work on that unit. Each unit is expected to take approximately 15 weeks.
During this work we will continue to manage water levels within expectations as nature allows.
