Testing & Commissioning
Adco is building two separate power houses on the Baffinland Iron Ore mine site. A 7.5 mega-watt, 2 generator plant at the Mine site and a 10.5 mega-watt, 3 generator plant at the Port site. Adco was awarded the complete EPC contract in December of 2018. Engineering and procurement took place for the first seven months of 2019, with actual site construction starting in August of 2019. The construction will begin with placement of the floor skids, then placement of the generators and other larger equipment. The building will then be erected around this equipment. Upon completion of the building being erected, Adco’s crews will then complete the following systems: fuel, heating/cooling, air, power distribution system, fire alarm/suppression and the base building electrical. Adco is also responsible for the complete testing and commissioning of both plants. The project completion date for the Mine plant is December of 2019 and April 2020 for the Port plant.
