Kanata South - Cable and Transformer Replacement Project

Start Date:  Postponed

Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking a cable and transformer replacement project in the Glen Cairn neighbourhood in Kanata South. This work is necessary to ensure reliability of electricity supply in the area.

Overall, this project will include:

  • The installation of a duct system which will house the underground cables. This will minimize the requirement for excavation for future cable replacement projects;
  • The replacement and installation of underground cables that are manufactured using improved insulation materials; and
  • The replacement and installation of transformers that are more compact and that will provide safer and quicker operation for our powerline maintainers.

Hydro Ottawa will then move forward with the reinstatement work and bring the project to completion once the above work has successfully been completed.

Resident may notice increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities and construction vehicles.

While this project was orgininally scheduled to take place during summer 2021, Hydro Ottawa had to postpone the work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. New timelines on this project will be communicated to customers ahead of time, once confirmed.
