Yellow Falls Hydropower Project

Yellow Falls Hydropower Project

6509 Airport Rd. Mississauga, Ontario L4V 1S7
Boralex and First Nation partners Taykwa Tagamou Nation (TTN) and the Mattagami First Nation worked together as a team to complete this technically challenging project. It consisted of a combined intake and powerhouse in a close-coupled arrangement near the west bank of the river, with two 8 MW turbine-generator units housed in the plant. A spillway with three vertical-lift, fixed-roller gates and one set of stop logs was built adjacent to the powerhouse and the powerhouse was flanked by two sections of dam, each about 15 meters high.
