About Long Harbour
Long Harbour & Mount Arlington Heights is a small rural community located in southeastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Long Harbour is adjacent to major shipping lanes of the northwest Atlantic Ocean, and is sheltered in a deep ice-free harbour.
Long Harbour has a rich and successful history of industrial activity. ERCO (now Rhodia Canada) operated a phosphorus plant in the town for more than 20 years, employing upwards of 500 people at peak operation. Other activities in the area have included construction of the Hibernia production platform in the Bull Arm Industrial Site in the early 1990's, as well as the operation of the North Atlantic Petroleum refinery nearby in Come By Chance. New activity in the area includes construction work at the Bull Arm Industrial Site for the Hebron oil field and plans for expansion of the North Atlantic refinery.
Long Harbour will now be home to Vale Inco NL's Nickel Processing Plant. Construction timeline is 2009 - 2013 with commissioning and start-up in 2013.
