We have had a series of cascading faults this summer related to the converter. We would rectify one problem then another would occur. To add to the delays, the components are to European specification and are at least 10 years old. In the case of the motorized breaker switch in the converter, the part was out of stock and had to be manufactured. At present the control system for the converter has failed and has been sent to Holland for repair. In addition, the interface computer has recently failed. The operators of an LW52 in Alberta have kindly offered to help with a replacement.
We expect to be back in operation as soon as possible after we receive functioning spares.
