Innavik Hydro, a limited partnership, is planning to install a 7.5 MW hydroelectric facility in the village of Inukjuak in the northern Quebec region of Nunavik. Activa Environnement was contracted by lead contractor CRT Construction to obtain the environmental authorizations required for project construction.
The Innavik project aims to allow the community of Inukjuak to transition from diesel and heating oil to renewable energy sources. Mobilization for construction began in late 2019 and the plant is expected to begin supplying power to the community toward the end of 2022. Valued at approximately $125M, this investment marks the first partnership between an Inuit-owned corporation and an independent power producer.
The Innavik project will spur growth in Inukjuak, an Inuit community of 1,800 located on the Hudson Bay. It will create local jobs during construction and operation of the facility, in addition to helping diversify the economy. Activa Environnement is proud to contribute to this project.
