Webequie First Nation Health Center Fuel System Upgrades

About the project

We have installed generator and fuel storage facilities in many communities in remote regions, many with only winter road, water and/or air access. The Webequie First Nation is is a fly-in community with no summer road access and is located 540 kilometres north of Thunder Bay, Ontario.

CPI provided labour, equipment and materials to construct the nursing Station Fuel System Upgrades, including the installation of two pre-purchased 25,000 litre bulk fuel storage tanks and one Fuel transfer kiosk. The pre-purchased equipment was shipped to the airport in Webequie. A key factor for the success of this project was CPI’s expertise in implementing construction involving emergency generators and sewage pumping station stations with submersible wet wells.

For over 50 years, CPI has built remote fuel systems for northern communities throughout Canada and have a proud history of working for First Nations communities. We worked closely with the community to use local resources, including renting local equipment and buying local material. The local work force was leveraged for this project and CPI provided site specific training for community members through on-the job training. Our objective is to always leave the community with the necessary tools to operate and maintain the project after it was commissioned.
