Hall Beach lies on the shore of Foxe Basin. The community was created in 1957 when a Distant Early Warning (DEW) site was established in the area to help monitor Canadian air space. The DEW Line site was later replaced by the North Warning System Radar which is currently used in Hall Beach. more...

Fuel Tanks
One 90K horizontal tank is installed in a metal berm. Bulk fuel is nominated and can be
delivered either by truck or by pipeline. The pipeline is approximately 5200 feet in length
and is extremely vulnerable to mechanical damage. As fuel delivery is presently by truck, environmental liability is minimal.
Capital Work
New plant extension was completed in 1993/94 fiscal year. Three existing Cat units were retained and a new D3508 was installed. A Series 60 Detroit Diesel unit was installed in the fall of 1999 which has resulted in significant improvement to the plant efficiency.
Plant Forecast
Capacity of the plant is adequate for the foreseeable future. Plant is located centrally
within the community and residual heat recovery may be feasible.
Future Work
The building is adequate for the foreseeable future and any additional capacity
requirements will fit easily into the existing structure. The property should be fenced due to its central location.
