xx Subscribing/Donating

Top of the evening Mike or staff

I just tried subscribing via e-transfer and it failed on me via the alternate to PayPal option.

If you want to confirm who or where I can send it to, I will do so shortly. Been here to long not to pitch in.


P.s reason for the post is I see two different e transfer addresses and the alternate subscribe page failed so wanted to be sure that the addresses were up to date before I sent.

xx Nanisivik Naval Facility

August 17, 2019, 20:09:33 by Chief Engineer
HMCS Ville de Quebec recently visited the new Nanisivik Naval Facility to test the span wire fueling system at the facility by conducting a "dry fit" hookup. The facility reached operational capability this year with full operational capability next year.The facility has the fuel capacity of two 3.75-million-litre fuel tanks that will service the new Harry DeWolf Class Arctic Offshore Patrol vessels as well as Halifax, Kingston, and Victoria Class including the future CSC. Currently ships have to get their fuel and rations from NUUK and Thule Greenland and from CCG vessels.
The facility is under the administration of CFB Halifax and tenders will be called soon for a contractor to run the facility. At the beginning of the season a tanker will fill the tank farm and all fuel will be expended by the end of the season and the facility will be unmanned during the winter. The facility is connected by a 40km road to the town of Arctic Bay which is serviced by an airport that personnel, rations and supplies can be flown in. The facility has a disused airstrip that has the potential to be expanded in the future.
