Pinkut Creek Enhancement Project - Generator Replacement

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans is undertaking a project to replace the two main generators that power the Pinkut Spawning Channel.  These generators are replacing unsafe machines. The generators were declared inoperable from a service technician in 2020. If the generators continued in operation, there is a chance they could catastrophically fail. This represents a health and safety issue. The generators had problematic history of failures and breakdowns.

This scope will replace the main generator 1 and 2 inside the Generator Building. The majority of the work will be indoor replacing the existing generators mechanical and electrical connections, then place the new generators onto the buildings concrete foundation. Outside activities: decommission existing 13,600L fuel tank plus 500L day tank, and replace it with a new 13,000 L fuel tank.

The proposed project will include the following steps:

  1. Replacement of existing diesel generators
  2. Install new piping, and connect generators to exhaust system and ventilation system
  3. Replacement of existing 13000L diesel tank with similar sized tank, install new day tanks
  4. Connect to existing site electrical services
