|Plant Status Report - Repulse Bay - 616
|The metal clad powerhouse dates back to the early seventies.
The structure has become a collection of add-ons. The main structure
is sound but needs to be refurbished. A new powerhouse has been built
adjacent to the old building and the engines have been moved into
the new part. The old part is being used for storage and parking.
|The storage is in add-ons to the plant, these are unheated
and poorly constructed. The old powerhouse will take over much of
|The new building has an office facility.

|There are two 90K horizontal tanks in
a steel berm. This tank farm was redone in 1994. It is on direct pipeline
to the PPD tank farm. Our annual resupply is partially nominated and
partially bulk a total of 550,000 litres. There was a major spill
in Repulse in 1995 due to equipment failure. A soil remediation program
is ongoing due to this spill with a completion date expected in 1999.
The soil remediation is not finished. The berm is in need of repairs
|The construction of an extension on
the original building has been completed and all electrical and mechanical
equipment has been transferred to the new building. A D3406E was installed
in 1997 and a Series 60 in 2000.
|Plant capacity is adequate for the immediate
future. The location of the plant and demand in the community doesn't
present an opportunity for residual heat at this time. Potential fuel
savings would be possible with the replacement of the D3412 and the
economic viability of this idea should be investigated.
