Fuel Tanks
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.
Capital Work
There is no capital work planned for Whale Cove and none will probably be necessary in
the near future.
Plant Forecast
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.
Future Work
