Plant Status Report - Repulse Bay - 616 April 2001
PowerHouse
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.
Storage Facilities
The storage is in add-ons to the plant, these are unheated and poorly constructed. The old powerhouse will take over much of this storage.
Office Facilities
The new building has an office facility.

Fuel Tanks
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 and painting.
Capital Work
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 Forecast
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.
