Wawakapewin First Nations Project Wins CEO Award

MMMWawakapewinOffGridPhotos1_ccAt the recent Consulting Engineers of Ontario gala in Toronto, MMM’s Wawakapewin First Nations Project was awarded an Award of Merit. The Firm’s Enermodal Engineering team completed a generating station retrofit, and designed a photovoltaic system for the remote First Nations community.

“Almost 600 kilometres north of Thunder Bay is Wawakapewin, a First Nations community accessible only by air and winter ice roads. Until recently, only two diesel-powered, 125-kilowatt generators supplied power to Wawakapewin. The problem? The generators shut down during the summer, due to low-load conditions. The community hired Enermodal Engineering, a member of MMM Group, to determine a solution.” Read the rest of the article and find out how Enermodal helped the community save 14,300 litres of diesel a year in Accolades Magazine.
