Construction began in 2017 and will continue for 18 - 24 months. The power generation component of HIW will consist of infrastructure including 87 Vestas 3.45 MW wind turbines, transformers, a 34.5 kV electrical collection system, communication lines, meteorological towers, access roads, an operation and maintenance building and a project substation. During construction, equipment laydown yards and parking areas have been located.

The transmission line component of HIW is largely outside of the reserve boundaries and will link the project to the Hydro One Network. The transmission line will run from HIW south along the east side of HWY 69 to Woods Road where it will divert east to follow along the existing Hydro One corridor and will connect to a substation south of Parry Sound.

We are employing local workers and subcontractors to the greatest extent possible to construct, operate and maintain HIW. Subcontractors have been engaged to conduct civil work (grading, excavation, concrete), electrical work and mechanical assembly. Typical personnel requirements include construction managers, electricians, heavy equipment operators, and general laborers for assembly and civil work.
