Located on the Kagiano River, the Twin Falls Generating Station has a storied history, which Chant keeps engaged in collaboration with the Pic River First Nation.
Expected to produce clean energy for decades, the 5 MW run-of-the-river hydroelectricity generating station is nestled 30 km northwest of Manitouwadge, Ontario.
The control weirs, intake structure, power shaft, underground station, surface building, tailrace tunnel and facility as well as a 30 km long 46kV transmission line was built in 1999.
As of 2010, Chant has worked as the project’s operations manager, ensuring the day-to-day runs smoothly while optimizing energy production.
- It was the first generating station in Ontario owned and operated by a First Nation
- Chant’s involvement at Twin Falls has improved performance in power production, driven by the optimization of the use of the twin units with available water and more effective maintenance
- Since Chant took over, there have been fewer unplanned outages, lower overall operational costs and higher plant availability
