Hy­dro One ex­pands in Haldimand

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS -

Hy­dro One is fol­low­ing through on a plan to es­tab­lish a new op­er­a­tions cen­tre in Haldimand County.

The pro­vin­cial util­ity is re­spon­si­ble for the dis­tri­bu­tion of elec­tric­ity in Haldimand.

In 2015, Hy­dro One iden­ti­fied the need for an op­er­a­tions cen­tre on the east side of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity to ad­dress a ser­vice short­fall in the area.

In a news re­lease, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity said is work­ing closely with Hy­dro One to iden­tify a suit­able de­vel­op­ment site within Dun­nville.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Hy­dro One re­cently met with Haldimand Mayor Ken He­witt to dis­cuss the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment.

“Haldimand County is pleased to be work­ing closely with Hy­dro One on this project, which will see new and pos­i­tive growth for our com­mu­nity,” He­witt said. “We are look­ing for­ward to the de­vel­op­ment of the new Hy­dro One op­er­a­tions cen­tre in Dun­nville.”

The Hy­dro One com­plex will in­clude a new build­ing of about 15,000 square feet and bring about 20 new jobs to the com­mu­nity.

Once a site has been se­lected and a con­di­tional agree­ment-of-pur­chase and sale is in place, the de­sign and en­gi­neer­ing phase will be­gin.

Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start in 2020 and be com­pleted in early 2021.
