Fortune Cable Renewal Project

August 2022 - May 2023

The Fortune Cable Renewal Project is being completed as an essential requirement to replace the underground equipment to maintain the electricity capacity required to provide power to the Orleans Ward.

What will this project include 

  • Installation of concrete encased road crossings and 6,000m of buried ducts
  • Removal and replacement of 46 transformers located on impacted streets
  • Excavation and replacement of underground cables located in this area

Why we are moving forward with this project

Hydro Ottawa equipment located in this area is reaching the end of life. As a result, it is essential to replace this equipment to ensure the overall reliability of the electricity distribution system in the area moving forward.
