Haldimand County and Hydro One Networks Inc. (Hydro One) are pleased to announce that the project to develop a Hydro One Operations Centre in Dunnville, Ontario is underway.
In 2015, Hydro One determined the need to establish an Operations Centre on the east side of Haldimand County to better serve the region. Currently, Hydro One and Haldimand County are working closely together to identify a suitable site within Dunnville that meets the necessary requirements for this development.
Representatives from Hydro One recently met with Haldimand County Mayor Ken Hewitt to discuss the proposed development. The new Hydro One Operations Centre planned for Dunnville will include the construction of a new building of approximately 15,000 square feet in size and bring approximately 20 new jobs to the community.
At this time, Hydro One is conducting its due diligence to identify a preferred location for the new Operations Centre. Once a site has been selected and a conditional agreement of purchase and sale is in place, the design and engineering phase will begin. It is anticipated that construction of this project will begin in 2020 and be completed in early 2021.
“Haldimand County is pleased to be working closely with Hydro One on this project that will see new and positive growth for our community,” said Mayor Hewitt. “We are looking forward to the development of the new Hydro One Operations Centre in Dunnville.”
