Resolute Bay Radar Base

Project Name: Resolute Bay Radar Base

Tonnage: 400

Scope: Supply, crate/package, and install structural steel. The project also included the installation of electrical radar equipment onsite.

Completion: 2011

RKO Steel Limited’s work is not necessarily limited to Atlantic Canada. The Resolute Bay Radar Base is an excellent example of our capabilities. RKO was selected to supply, fabricate, deliver and erect two antenna structures near Resolute, Nunavut. The structures were triangular-shaped, measuring approximately 90 feet wide by 60 feet deep by 100 feet high, with a total weight of almost 400 tons. The job had to be carefully detailed as the actual structure had sloping members. RKO trial-assembled the structures prior to shipping with no issues, and all aspects of the job were completed successfully.
