Pointe du Bois Dam and Powerhouse
Pointe du Bois dam and powerhouse are located on the Winnipeg River, approximately 160 km northeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Con-Tech Systems Ltd. was contracted to supply Manitoba Hydro with the appropriate anchors for the dam and powerhouse. For the powerhouse, which is 135 metres long, we supplied 48 tie down strand anchors. Each anchor consisted of 18 strands 105 feet long and was restressable. Some of the anchors were also equipped SMS gauges and load cells for permanent monitoring.
