“We need to rebuild the plant in order to maintain safe, reliable power supply”
The Qulliq Energy Corp. is requesting permission to spend $7.9 million on a new power plant in Grise Fiord to replace a dilapidated structure built in 1963.
That one has “numerous problems in regard to its civil, mechanical and electrical systems,” said Peter Ma, QEC’s newly-appointed president and chief executive officer, in a Dec. 6 news release.
“The infrastructure suffers from several deficiencies, including failing building foundation, unreliable superstructure and aging systems and equipment,” Ma continued.
“We need to rebuild the plant in order to maintain safe, reliable power supply for the community of Grise Fiord.”
