Gjoa Haven New Power Plant (149571)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Megan Larose
Company: Qulliq Energy Corporation
Start Date: 2026-04-01
End Date: 2066-03-31
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) is proposing to construct and operate a new power plant in the Hamlet of Gjoa Haven located in the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut (the Project). This multi-year project will include a new four-engine power generation facility (proposed generating capacity of 3,100 kilowatts) designed for a 40-year life and incorporate new technology to improve reliability, efficiency, operation, and safety. Construction will include a fuel storage system consisting of two 90,000 litre horizontal fuel tanks with secondary containment, appropriate pumping facilities, Quonset garage, transformer storage, pole racks, oil and glycol drum storage and waste disposal area (with secondary containment berm), space for a transient staff accommodation unit, sea cans for storage, and a back-up emergency generator. Upgrades to the existing distribution system will also be required to connect to the new power plant. An approximately 50-metre fuel pipeline will be constructed to connect to the Petroleum Products Division (PPD) bulk fuel storage facility located to the east. The pipeline will be a combination of aboveground and underground construction. The new plant will be capable of integrating renewable energy sources.

Fuel Use
Type Container(s) Capacity UOM Use
Diesel 1 0 Liters Fuel will be required during construction for all equipment used on site. Fuel storage and handling during construction will be the responsibility of the contractor. Details regarding the location and volume of fuel storage and location of equipment refueling during construction are not known at this time. The contractor will be required to have a fuel management plan.
Diesel 2 90000 Liters Fuel will be used/stored at the power plant to run the generators. Fuel will be stored in above-ground horizontal fuel storage tanks.
Hazardous Material and Chemical Use
Type Container(s) Capacity UOM Use
solvent 4 205 Liters generator maintenance and operation
engine oil 16 205 Liters generator maintenance and operation
propylene glycol 1 2000 Liters power plant operations, heat transfer
Water Consumption
Daily Amount (m3) Retrieval Method Retrieval Location
0 to be determined by the contractor to be determined by the contracto

Waste Management
Waste Type Quantity Generated Treatement Method Disposal Method
Combustible wastes unknown none Disposal of construction waste will be the responsibility of the contractor. If permitted by the Hamlet, some waste may be disposed of at the local landfill.
Combustible wastes unknown none During operations, QEC will dispose of domestic waste in the local landfill if permitted by the Hamlet. Waste that is not permitted in the local landfill will be shipped south as part of QECs annual waste shipment.
Hazardous waste 2460 litres none Amount of liquid waste during operation will vary annually. Waste fuel/glycol will be collected in drums, stored within secondary containment and shipped south for disposal.
Non-Combustible wastes 200 litres none Amount of non-combustible waste generated during operation will vary annually. Material will be stored in quatrex bags or other appropriate containment and shipped south for disposal.
Overburden (organic soil, waste material, tailings) unknown none Disposal of overburden and soil/rock excavated for power plant to be determined by the contractor in communication with the Hamlet. Volume to be determined. If possible, some overburden material may be used to build up other areas within the plant site.
