One of the transformers at the Hardisty substation needs to be replaced so we can continue to provide you with safe and reliable power.

Project details

One of the transformers at the Hardisty substation (10120 50 Street) has reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced. The new transformer will look similar to the existing transformer and will be placed in the same location (see map below). As a part of this project we will also be removing four external voltage regulators from service, as their function is now included in the new transformer.

Proposed schedule and project map

​Proposed schedule

This work is planned to begin in the spring of 2019 and will take approximately 4 months to complete.
