Keeyask Hydroelectric Project

Sitting on Canada’s fourth longest river, The Nelson, is the 695-megawatt Keeyask Hydroelectric Generating Station. This site utilizes the water flowing in The Nelson that runs approximately 400 miles from Lake Winnipeg to the Hudson Bay. This river drains one of the largest watersheds in North America making it a great location for hydropower facility.

The Keeyask Hydroelectric Generating Station is a partnership between Manitoba Hydro and four Manitoba First Nations (Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, York Factory First Nation, and Fox Lake Cree Nation) known as the Keeyask Hydropower Limited Partnership. This facility will add around 4,400 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity per year to Manitoba Hydro’s total supply which can power 400,000 homes.


Keeyask Dam

Electric Power Door’s vertical lift door was used as a solution for their service bay door. The project required a door that can withstand extreme winds and cold temperatures 450 miles north-east of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Electric Power Door custom manufactured a three leaf vertical lift door for the opening. This insulated door is designed to last the lifetime of the building with minimal maintenance required. The robust design also assists with the buildings temperature control.
