QEC begins upgrades and maintenance season

Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) would like to inform Nunavummiut that QEC’s upgrades and maintenance season has begun.

During warmer weather conditions, QEC completes repairs, upgrades, and maintenance to power plants and power line systems. This work is required to ensure that customers have a safe and reliable power supply all year long. Customers will be informed of planned power outages in advance through radio, social media, and email distribution.

Nunavut’s Chief Public Health Officer has approved in-territory travel out of and into Iqaluit for QEC employees completing critical work on power systems (including crucial maintenance and emergency response). The corporation has been working diligently to ensure the safety of Nunavut communities by establishing strict measures to help limit the spread of COVID-19 during travel.

QEC would like to thank Nunavummiut for their understanding.
