Twin Falls
Generation Station

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.

Our work

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
