The Proposed Project

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project which aims to remove the Naval Armament Depot central heating plant from service and decentralize oil fired steam heating by installing local gas boilers, as defined in the Canadian Forces Base Halifax Energy Performance Contract. The Naval Armament Depot has a central heating plant serving multiple buildings. The central heating plant was built in 1943 and contains two old steam boilers that provide heating to the buildings. The steam plant and its distribution system are old and inefficient.
