Plant Status Report - Cape Dorset - 722 April 2001
PowerHouse
Original metal clad building was constructed in 1964 on a concrete foundation with a
small addition added in 1973. There was a small, oil storage room added in 1992. Old engine module was recently retrofitted to provide a washroom and office facility. Storage is reasonable in a small warehouse/garage facility. All buildings were insulated and reclad in 1995/96 due to community concerns with regards to its location, condition, and hazards.

Fuel Tanks
One 90K horizontal tank is installed in a metal berm on the plant site. Bulk fuel is
nominated with PPD and is delivered by truck. Environmental liability is minimal.
Capital Work
A used D3512 was installed in 1995 and this is presently the prime unit.
Buildings were re-clad and plant automation was completed in 1996/97.
A small SCADA system was installed in 1998.
Plant Forecast
Capacity of the plant is adequate for the foreseeable future. The plant is located centrally within the community and residual heat recovery is easily accomplished, as several large buildings are accessible in the immediate area. Additional space would be required to install heat exchangers; a module could possible fulfil this function.
Future Work
The building is extremely crowded with minimal space for any improvements. The two
D398's are approaching their optimal life expectancy and will require replacement in a
5-10 year period. Any increase in capacity would require a building extension.
