Wuskwatim Generating Station Project

Wuskwatim is a 200-MW run-of-river hydroelectric generating station on the Burntwood River at Taskinigup Falls. It is located in the Nelson House Resource Management Area about 45 kilometres southwest of Thompson and 35 kilometres southeast of Nelson House.

In 2006, the Wuskwatim Project Development Agreement (PDA) that governs all aspects of the Project, was signed by Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN) Chief and Council and Manitoba Hydro. The station is owned by the Wuskwatim Power Limited Partnership (WPLP), a legal entity involving Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN) and Manitoba Hydro. Manitoba Hydro provides management and operational services to the WPLP in accordance to the PDA.
