Fuel Tanks
One 90K horizontal installed within a metal berm. Bulk fuel is nominated.
Environmental liability is minimal
Capital Work
Considerable upgrading was completed in 1995/96. Two units were installed,
switchgear module installed, plant automation completed, and transient trailer upgrade.
Minor residual heat system was installed in 1997 to heat Corporation buildings.
Plant Forecast
Capacity of the plant is adequate for the foreseeable future. Plant is located centrally
within the community and residual heat recovery may be feasible although there are no
potential, large, customers in the immediate vicinity.
Future Work
The building is adequate for the foreseeable future, however any additional capacity
requirements would necessitate a building extension. The building should be
soundproofed and reclad to avoid future complaints.
