Generator Replacement and Fire Panel Upgrade at existing Hangar building

Winnipeg Airports Authority must determine whether the proposed decommissioning of an existing diesel generator and installation of a new natural gas generator on the exterior of existing hangar building at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG), located in Winnipeg, Manitoba is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

To help inform this determination, Winnipeg Airports Authority is inviting comments from the public until February 12, 2023 respecting that determination. All comments received will be considered public and may be posted online.

The Proposed Project

Royal Canadian Mounted Police proposes to undertake the decommissioning of an existing diesel generator and installation of a new natural gas generator on a new exterior concrete pad at existing hangar building located at 145 West Hangar Rd, Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, Winnipeg MB. The project will provide backup electrical generation for the life safety systems within the building. Work includes pouring a concrete pad, drilling various penetrations into the building to run cabling, and the setup and testing of a new natural gas generator. The existing diesel generator located within the building will be decommissioned and removed.
