Wind Energy Monitoring at Yellowknife (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at CN Hill (approximately 130 km from Yellowknife) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Yellowknife area. Wind data will be collected using instruments that measure wind speed, direction, and temperature. At CN Hill, the sensors will be installed on an existing Northwestel Tower. Tw...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Inuvik High Point (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Wind data will be collected using instruments on a wind tower that will be installed at the site. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analy...


Delivery System For Pre-Engineered Manufactured Self-Sustaining (PEMaSS) Housing To Remote Regions
Principal Investigator: Thirunavukarasu, Asok
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of this research is to identify current state of housing in Yellowknife. This field research should give insights on window-wall ratio, window type, typical R-values, typical construction assemblies, mechanical systems used and delivery process for housing. This will help benchmark the current energy and future performance of housing in the region. As well, the objective of this fiel...


Tarsiut Caissons - Removal and Remediation Plan
Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion. One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tu...


Whati Transmission Line Engineering and Environmental Study
Principal Investigator: Lennie-Misgeld, Janpeter
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of the study are as follows: - Perform limited geotechnical analysis to confirm assumptions on foundation type and location and routing; - Identify any archeological or cultural resources that may be impacted by the transmission line; - Conduct environmental field work e.g. wildlife sightings and documentation, plant samples, caribou migration trails; and - Use the information...


Northwest Territories Power Corporation Twin Gorges Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan
Principal Investigator: Byrne, Geraldine
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan (AEMP) and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) are requirements under water license MV2011L0002 issued by the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB). The objective of the AEMP is to monitor and identify potential short-term, long-term and cumulative changes throughout the Taltson River aquatic environment. The objective of the SEMP is to identify...


Proposed Aklavik West Road and Bridge - Hydrotechnical and Geotechnical Field Investigations
Principal Investigator: Kors-Olthof, Rita I
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: The goals of the hydrotechnical research are to: - learn if there are possible problem areas due to water or ice along the proposed road; - choose the best proposed bridge location so that a new bridge won't wash out like the temporary one does; and - decide on length of bridge so that abutment locations can be chosen for later geotechnical drilling sites. The goals of the geotechnical resea...


Renewable energies: Design and Testing Zero-head Micro hydro turbine,Solar/Hydrogen fuel cell testing
Principal Investigator: Mutua, Daniel
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: Objectives are to: 1. Design and test zero-head hydro-electric turbines under low flow, i.e. less than 1 m/sec velocity, for the purpose of utilizing locally available renewable hydro resources; 2. Solar/Hydrogen fuel cell testing; 3. Evaluate the feasibility of an NWT-based commercial venture to manufacture and sell these turbines, and/or integrated energy systems. In rivers where ther...


In-Stream Turbines for N'dulee Crossing Ferry Camp
Principal Investigator: May, Glenn
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this study are: 1. To evaluate the use of hydrokinetic power generation in the Northwest Territories for use in off-grid applications, 2. To demonstrate cost-savings and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions power for a ferry camp (N'dulee Crossing, about 80 km WNW of Fort Simpson on the way to Wrigley), 3. Based on the results of the N'dulee crossing operation in 2010, evalua...


Lutsel K'e Mini Hydro Project
Principal Investigator: Cote, Jason E
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: - Conduct a fish and fish habitat assessment upstream and downstream of the proposed Project Site (2nd rapids on Snowdrift River). This would involve vegetation assessment, depth and velocity transects and fish sampling. - Conduct fish and fish habitat assessments in the Snowdrift River tributaries at the proposed road crossings between Lutsel K’e communi...
