Recent Power Outages in Iqaluit

Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) would like to inform the residents of Iqaluit that the recent power outages in the city were caused by issues with equipment control devices in the power generation system. The issues took a significant amount of time to troubleshoot as they affected multiple generator sets. The corporation’s technical staff have since repaired and replaced any necessary equipment and tested the control system for reliability.

QEC thanks residents for their understanding and apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.
