The wind blows strong at Hope Bay – the site of Agnico Eagle mining activities in the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut.
TUGLIQ is proud to have, along with its partner Hiqiniq Energy Corporation, signed a memorandum of understanding with Agnico Eagle to work towards the development of a wind-based power project to reduce Hope Bay carbon footprint, as part of the mining company’s Climate Action strategy towards a net zero emissions target for 2050.
Hiqiniq Energy Corporation is a fully owned subsidiary of Kitikmeot Corporation, a 100% Inuit-owned economic development company.
The project seeks to maximize the tremendous wind potential of the region to reduce diesel consumption at the mine while stimulating skilled knowledge building and economic development for Inuit communities in the Kitikmeot region.
TUGLIQ remains committed in its mission to reduce fossil fuel with proximity energy sources, innovative projects and world class partnerships.
