terence monteithAbout Terence

Terence is a project professional with over 20 years of experience in a variety of roles and industries. Since 2016 he has been the Lead Interface Engineer on the construction phase of Manitoba Hydro’s Keewatinohk HVDC Converter Station project in northern Manitoba. In this role Terence is responsible for ensuring the engineering and construction details of the major EPCMs are defined where their scopes intersect. He is also responsible for several million dollars worth of balance of plant scope required to complete the project. Terence has found this to be a challenging role, requiring equal parts engineering, project management, and construction management.

Presentation Overview

The Keewatinohk HVDC Converter Station (KCS) is one segment of the larger BiPole III megaproject undertaken by Manitoba Hydro. It was a technically challenging project, driven almost exclusively by schedule. As with most Crown Corporations, this project was also in a politically charged environment which further complicated project execution. The project was largely successful, meeting its primary targets. Accomplishing this was in no small part to using good project management principles. This presentation will offer a lessons learned perspective on each of the PMI knowledge areas as they relate to the interface aspect of the KCS project.
