NEW CONVERTERS FOR LONGER WEST-SIDE BIPOLE ADD $1.1 BILLION


Manitoba Hydro confirms the estimated $1.1 billion additional cost to build new conversion equipment to support BiPole III down the longer west side.


Manitoba Opposition Leader Hugh McFadyen says the NDP’s out-of-touch decision is putting Manitoba Hydro’s future in peril. (He's right)

“We’ve had engineers, the Farlinger report, and even CEO Bob Brennan confirm the new converters are directly tied to the west-side route.” During committee on March 8, 2010, Brennan told McFadyen the converter stations were only added, “when we decided to come down the west side.” Additionally, the transmission study conducted by CMC Consultants (Farlinger Report) stated, “unfortunately, due to its long length, its characteristics make it unsuitable to operate with either of the existing BiPole I or BiPole II converters, requiring it to have its own converters designed to operate with the longer lines.”

Informed Manitobans have known since 2007 that new converters would be essential for the longer, less efficient west-side route.

Last month, Manitoba Hydro confirmed the estimated costs for the Northern and Southern converters, plus escalation and interest, would be $1.1 billion. Experts have also confirmed that the additional converters would not be necessary if BiPole III were built on the more efficient, shorter east-side route.

And the moral of the story?

Never ... Ever ... allow children or lunatics or criminals or the NDP to have the keys to the bank accounts.

I heard it would also be cheaper to have it run down the centre of the lake.

At least we know why the pain is there. I think Manitobans who keep voting for these commie buggers either like it, or have become so accustomed to it they forget it's even happening....
