Canadian Arctic: Naval Base Tendering Begins
The federal government is looking for a company to build the proposed Nanisivik naval facility.
The government has issued a 'Request for Qualifications — the first step in the tendering process as it seeks a company with experience of building in the Arctic, reports CBC News.
The document estimates the cost of the construction to be $56 million, but it is not clear whether that will cover all the work, and the federal government has already budgeted more than $100 million for the facility.
The project has been fraught with setbacks since it was first announced in 2007.
