Wataynikaneyap Power Transmission Project

In September of 2019, a Quanta operating company was selected by Wataynikaneyap Power lp to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solutions for the Wataynikaneyap Transmission Project (Watay Project) in Northwestern Ontario, Canada. Wataynikaneyap Power is a licensed transmission company and is majority-owned by a partnership of 24 First Nation communities in partnership with Fortis, Inc. and other investors. The scope of work on the project consists of EPC services for more than 990 miles of transmission and distribution infrastructure ranging in voltage from 25 kV to 230 kV and 22 substations. Once completed, the Watay Project will be the largest electric infrastructure project ever implemented to connect remote communities in Ontario, including 17 First Nations communities, with electricity generation and distribution systems that are not currently connected to the provincial transmission grid.
