ᓯᕗᒧᐊᕐᓂᖓᑕ ᐊᓪᓗᓂᖓ /
The project calls for the construction of a thermal generating station in the northern village of Kangiqsujuaq. The generating station will initially be equipped with three salvaged and factory refurbished generating units, paired with three new alternators. The generating units will have powers of 855 kW, 1,135 kW and 1,168 kW, for a total installed capacity of 3.16 MW at commissioning. It will be possible to increase the installed capacity to 4.6 MW with the addition of a fourth generating unit, if necessary.
The project also calls for the installation of solar panels on the generating station building, providing capacity of up to 20 kW. The generating station will be designed to allow for the subsequent integration of a wind farm of approximately 2.3 MW, a project that will be specifically applied for at the appropriate time.
