Manitoba Hydro’s Keeyask project reaches full operation

13 May 2022

The last unit of the Keeyask hydropower plant is now online. This means that the 695MW project in Manitoba, Canada, has reached full operation.

Keeyask, developed by Manitoba Hydro in partnership with the Keeyask Cree Nations, covers the installation of a seven-unit powerhouse apart from a seven-gate spillway in southern Gull Rapids.

The work was executed by a Bechtel-led group of companies that also encompasses Barnard and EllisDon.

The plant’s reservoir area, on the Nelson River, corresponds to approximately 93km, with dykes totalling 23km. Commissioning of Keeyask’s units was ongoing since February 2021.
