Australia maintains four year-round research stations; Casey, Davis and Mawson within Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island station. The population of the stations ranges between 40 and 100 expeditioners over summer and 15 to 20 over the winter months. Each season more than 500 expeditioners travel south with the Australian Antarctic Program.
All four AAD stations have CO2 fire suppression systems. They have been recognised as a WHS risk in that, were they to accidentally discharge, the risk to human health would be significant, potentially resulting in death in an enclosed space. The cylinders are approximately 25 to 30 years old and all if any service records have been lost. These systems are to be decommissioned and the gas vented from the cylinders.
The AAD is seeking a supplier to provide a technician to travel to each of the four stations to conduct CO2 Fire Suppression System decommissioning at each site.
