The RMOW is seeking proposals to design, supply and install heat recovery system upgrades at its Composting Facility.
The current RMOW Composting Facility heat recovery system is inoperable due to corrosion of the heat pump evaporator coils from suspected high ammonia levels. The project intends to replace the current system and upgrade to a heat recovery system that is corrosion resistant. The project also includes the installation of an aeration floor in the woodchip storage area.
The aim of the project is to eliminate the use of propane to heat the compost process building. It also aims to assist in moisture reduction of compost feedstock prior to processing, thereby increasing the efficiency of the composting process.
For this RFP, the RMOW will only be evaluating vendors who have been pre-qualified for the recent 2021-2022 Request for Supplier Qualifications (RFSQ) and who attended the pre-bid meetings held at the Whistler Compost Facility between February 8 and February 10, 2021.
