Major-General G. R. Pearkes Building - High Pressure Fuel System Compliance

The purpose of this project is to assess and document the existing base building emergency generator fuel system and effect modifications and/or drawings as needed to render the system compliant to SOR-2008/197, and register this system with the TSSA.
There is currently a 5000L diesel fuel tank in the loading dock with pumps and fuel lines to the smaller day tank located in each of the 2 towers' 22nd floor emergency generator rooms. This project will include: - determination of conformance of existing high pressure piping system and associated tanks, and all other related equipment to an acceptable code (SOR-2008-197, and CMME, and as applicable CSA Z662, ANSI/ASME codes B31.1 or B31.3), which requires extensive site review of existing piping riser - access to piping will have to be provided if it is not already accessible: - pressure testing of system, non-destructive examination of piping (radiography/ultrasonic testing) to verify joint integrity, extent and scope of radiography inspection requirements to be determined with input from TSSA and consultant: - modification, as required; obtain approval from TSSA via application process with TSSA FSP, which require site-specific drawings and corresponding bill of materials of the pressure piping system and associated related equipment. The fuel system is identified and registered under ECCC# 00031204.
