Sikimiut constructs facility at Base Camp

The Torngat Mountains base camp was a hot spot for visitors this summer.

From government officials to researchers dropping by, there wasn’t a dull moment.

A permanent facility has been constructed to cater to the needs of those visitors.

Gus Dicker is one of the Owners and Partners with Sikimiut Environmental Management Ltd.

Sikumiut held the contract to construct the facility.

He says the facility was constructed this summer.

It houses a laboratory, accommodations and kitchen area.

The facility is powered by 36 solar panels.

In case the solar panels fail to power the facility, there are two diesel-powered engines available for back-up.

There is also a water-purifying system to provide the building with safe water.

Dicker adds they have a few finishing touches to make, but the facility will be ready for use next season.
