Our union members create clean energy at Keeyask Hydroelectric Generating Station

Aug 7, 2018

First water through the gates at the Keeyask site, where our members have been working hard to bring clean energy to North America.

A task force of over 2500 trades, support services and professionals including electricians, labourers, millwrights, heavy equipment operators, truck drivers and cement finishers worked to complete the site.

The Keeyask Project is a 695-megawatt (MW) hydroelectric generating station that is being developed in a partnership between Manitoba Hydro and 4 Manitoba First Nations: Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, York Factory First Nation, and Fox Lake Cree Nation. Working together, the Partners are known collectively as the Keeyask Hydropower Limited Partnership.

The site is located approximately 725 km north of Winnipeg on the lower Nelson River.
