B118 – MS2 Voltage Conversion

This project is a continuation of Orangeville Hydro’s (OH) voltage conversion program from 4.16kV to 27.6kV.

Project area was selected based on an asset condition assessment as well as its geographical location within our distribution system.  

The existing 4.16kV infrastructure in this area is served by our Municipal Substation # 2, which is OH’s oldest substation. 

Project scope includes the installation of hydro infrastructure such as, transformers, underground cable

and directional drilling to install ducting which protects both people and the proposed underground primary cable.

This project commenced in Q1, and the target end date of work is Q3 of 2022.
