Implosion sleeves are a specialized piece of equipment that uses a small detonation to permanently fuse power lines together. Manitoba Hydro crews recently used them on a transmission line in Brandon and filmed the process.
How our system works
A new transmission line from south Winnipeg to the RM of Hanover (southeast of the city) was put into service late last year and now serves one of the fastest growing areas of Manitoba.
The Birtle Transmission Project delivers renewable hydropower Saskatchewan and was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
Huge watershed feeds generating stations in dry times.
The cost of natural gas increases April 1, 2021 as part of the federal government’s multi-year carbon pollution pricing system.
The situation around the world has changed rapidly, but our commitment to bring safe and reliable electricity and natural gas to your home remains the same.
We get a lot of questions about street lights. We’ll answer the most common.

The key to Manitoba Hydro’s ‘flexibility’ (also called ‘dispatchability’) is its huge amount of energy storage — the water stored behind our hydro generating stations.
