Coral Harbour is called Salliq, meaning a large, flat island in front
of the mainland. The English explorer Sir Thomas Button named the
land Southampton Island, to honor his benefactor, the Earl of Southampton,
who promoted his voyage in 1604 in search of the Northwest Passage.
Plant Status Report - Coral Harbour - 613
The plant was built new in 1988. It has adequate capacity
and sufficient space for well into the
future. A PLC was installed in 1997. This is a good design - simple
The storage consists of the adjacent warehouse, and
two sea containers.
The office is currently in the adjacent warehouse. This
is recently added and suits our
needs well. We use the Northern Store for an agent in Coral.
Total Installed Capacity
Peak 2000/01 Load Requirement
There is one 90K horizontal tank in
a steel berm next to the plant. Our annual supply of
850,000 litres is nominated and delivered by truck.
The PLC was installed in 1997 and a
new engine was installed in 1994. In 1997 an
expansion to the warehouse was completed for storage space, garage
space for the
Skidozer and transient quarters to replace the existing trailer. These
changes should take us well into the future.
The present capacity will be sufficient
for at least 5 years. The plant is on the edge of town and not a good
candidate for residual heat.
