Orléans to get permanent Hydro One operations centre
By Fred Sherwin
One has announced plans to set up a permanent operations
centre to serve customers in Orléans, Cumberland,
Navan and Rockland. The utility is also investing $33.4
million in a new transmission station.
to Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli the investments will
"totally minimize" the likelihood of future
brownouts and blackouts in the area.
will also ensure that when there is damage that occurs
by way of an ice storm, or fires or some kind of extreme
weather event, Hydro One will be able to get it up and
running a lot quicker than they otherwise would.
operations centre will be located near Navan at 3450 Frank
Kenny Rd. just south of Colonial Rd. The centre and new
transmission station are expected to be in service by
the spring of 2015.
One and Ottawa Parks are also in discussions to build
a cricket pitch near the station.
