    1. : The Objective of this Contract is to supply services and materials for the maintenance of the powerhouses at the Eureka, Nunavut Weather Station.
      1. Work comprises of services and materials to supply of a 2-year maintenance contract with optional 3 additional years.
      2. Eureka Weather Station is located on the north side of Slidre Fjord, at the northwestern tip of Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island. The location coordinates are 79° 59’ 41” N and 85° 48’ 48” W and is accessed primarily by air with an all season air strip located about 1.5 km northeast of the site. An annual sea lift provides the area with a majority of the bulk goods and supplies since it is covered with ice most of the year. The site consists of the Weather Station and the outlying areas (the Airstrip, Skull Point DND, Fort Eureka DND and AStrO Lab ) within the radius of 15 kilometers.
      3. There are three 410 kW prime generators. At least one out of three is running all the time. These three main generators are the sole main Power House of all Eureka buildings. See spec sheet and serial numbers in the annex. The other various and smaller standby generators across the site are for minimal support. Site operation will be jeopardized without the power from the Power House. Complete shutdown of the Power House is not permitted. For reference, in the case of Power House failure of more than 6 hours, the emergency plan would take place and evacuation would be necessary, weather permitting.
