Manitoba Hydro has announced the first unit at the Keeyask Generating Station went into service earlier this week.
The crown company explains the first unit is entering service six months ahead of schedule, and the project is on track to meet its eight-point-seven billion dollar budget.
Hydro says there are roughly six hundred people currently working at the site to bring the six other units into service.
It states each line will be brought on line one-by-one over the next year.
When it’s complete, the company says Keeyask would be the fourth largest generating station in Manitoba.
