Part of the Lower Churchill Project (LCP), the Muskrat Falls Hydroelectric Development is located on the Churchill River about 291 km downstream of the Churchill Falls Hydroelectric Development which was developed in the early 1970s. The LCP includes two potential hydroelectric sites and their associated transmission systems: Gull Island Hydroelectric Development, located 225 km downstream of the existing Churchill Falls Generating Station, and Muskrat Falls Hydroelectric Development, located 60 km further downstream. The installed capacity of the Muskrat Falls facility will be 824 MW (4 units of 206 MW each).
Major construction of the Muskrat Falls Project commenced in early 2013 with the bulk excavation contract. Construction of the powerhouse commenced in 2014 and since then all major contracts have been awarded and only final commissioning of the units and completion of balance of plant work remains. Commercial power from the first unit is expected fall 2020.
