PORT AUX BASQUES – NL Power was on site at the old Stan Dawe building on Friday, May 14. A crew was observed upgrading the building’s power as Matador Mining continues to ramp up its Cape Ray gold exploration and operations in the region.
NL Power has also been observed recently completing work elsewhere around town, including near Tim Horton’s on High Street. Upgrades were necessary to accommodate the new electric charging station.
That work took about a week to complete.
“We had to put up seven transformers – two banks we call it – and a single one for service on the back,” explained crewman Fred Skinner.
