Thawikayhigan LP (TKG) is owned equally by Kingfisher Lake First Nation, Kasabonika Lake First Nation, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, Wapekeka, Wawakapewin, and Wunnumin Lake First Nations. TKG was established in November 2018 to secure contract work with the Watay Power Project.
TKG has been successful in establishing itself as a general contractor and securing a significant amount of contract work with Valard Construction LP (the EPC) as part of the Watay Project. Thus far TKG has crafted multiple alliances with reputable companies and worked on approx. 20 contracts are imminent or have started already.
From a legal perspective, the arrangements that TKG has established with its alliance partners are a blend of newly created limited partnerships, joint ventures, subcontracts, or a simple buy and sell arrangement.
From an operational perspective, the arrangements are a blend of service contracts (camp & catering, logistics) and supply contracts (fuel), with some of either showing potential for longevity. TKG generally refers to these opportunities as legacy opportunities.
