InfraRed Capital Partners (“InfraRed”) has completed the sale of a majority interest in Arctic Infrastructure Limited Partnership to Concert Infrastructure Fund (“Concert Infrastructure”).

Arctic Infrastructure Limited Partnership is the entity responsible for the improvement, operation and maintenance of the Iqaluit International Airport in Nunavut.  The Iqaluit Airport project is a 34-year concession for the design, construction and financing of the expansion and redevelopment of the existing Iqaluit International Airport in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada, and the provision of operations and maintenance services for the Government of Nunavut.

The original CAD 290m capex project included the design and construction of a new air terminal building and combined services building, the repaving and expansion of the runway and the enhancement of roadways and lighting systems. The facility opened in December 2017 and has been a recipient of several awards including the CCPPP National Awards gold award for infrastructure in 2017. It was the first complete airport infrastructure project to be built as a P3 in North America

InfraRed has developed this strategically located asset over five years and delivered on its ambitious and transformative plan to regenerate, in artic conditions at times, a decades-old facility which became operational in December 2017.
