Plant Status Report - Whale Cove 615
The plant was built in 1991 and is more than adequate
with room to expand well beyond
the foreseeable needs of the community.
These are also in the plant and are sufficient. The
plant also has an overhead door which
allows vehicle access.
The office is in the powerhouse and is adequate.
Total Installed Capacity
Peak 2000/01 Load Requirement
There is one 90K horizontal tank in
a steel berm next to the plant. Our annual supply of
444,000 litres is nominated and delivered by direct pipeline from
the PPD tank farm.
There is no capital work planned for
Whale Cove and none will probably be necessary in
the near future.
The present capacity will be sufficient
for the foreseeable future. The plant is on the edge
of town and not a good candidate for residual heat.
