Haldimand County and Hydro One have announced the development of a Hydro One Operations Centre in Dunnville. 

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 together to identify a suitable site within Dunnville that meets the necessary requirements. 

The new Hydro One Operations Centre will include the construction of a new building of approximately 15,000 square feet and bring about 20 new jobs to the community. 

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. 

“This project will see new and positive growth for our community,” said Hewitt.
