Project Description:
Currently there are three Diesel-Electric Generators (DEGs) at each North Warning System (NWS) Short Range Radar (SRR) site. The SRR power generation uses air-cooled Lister-Petter HL6 engines paired with a 30 kW Kato alternators. The Lister-Petter HL6 engines were installed at the 37 SRR sites in 1988. The HL6 engine reached the end of its production and was not available as a complete assembly after 1990. As a result of being discontinued, numerous parts are no longer available. All 111 diesel engines across the 37 sites require replacement. The NWS Office has approved a project to replace 111 engines at the NWS SRR sites including the Short Range Development (SRD) site in North Bay, Ontario. The scope of work includes the removal of obsolete engines, the provision and installation of new engines, technical services including engineering designs and studies, freight and logistics support, testing and commissioning, mobilization and demobilization of construction equipment, and all related construction activities. No additional fuel will be required on site to complete this project.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
The scope of work for this project is the replacement of generators; this work will include the removal, storage and refilling of the generator fluids. This task is routinely carried out during maintenance activities; as such all environmental impacts have been mitigated through the use of Standard Procedures. The Standard Procedures for these activities include; fluid removal from generator will occur in an enclosed garage; drip trays will be used and spill supplies will be ready and available (as per attached Spill Contingency Plan); all waste material will be packaged, labeled, stored and transported south in accordance with the Hazardous Materials General Management Plan (attached). All waste resulting from this project will be transported south for disposal.
