Nalcor Marks Milestone With First Muskrat Falls Energy Flow


The Muskrat Falls project has reached a milestone with the first electrical flow of Muskrat Falls. Last night, Muskrat’s first unit was successfully synchronized with the Labrador power grid.Nalcor says testing on the first production unit will continue over the next several weeks, before putting the unit into service this fall.

During the commissioning period, electricity generated at Muskrat Falls will be added to the Labrador power grid. Power for the second unit is expected later this year, with the third and fourth units entering service in 2021.

Another update on the project will arrive in about a week. Nalcor and GE are still working on the software issue preventing the transmission of electricity from Labrador to the island.
