Incident at NORMAN WELLS NT (CYVQ)

A North-Wright Airways Beech 1900D (C-FTKF/NWL141) from Norman Well, NT (CYVQ) to Fort Good Hope, NT (CYGH) rejected takeoff and returned to ramp.
UPDATE from Aircraft Maintenance & Manufacturing: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. On the takeoff roll from Norman Wells, NT (CYVQ), the Crew noted a momentary illumination of the ENVIRO FAIL light. The takeoff was aborted and the aircraft returned to the main ramp without further incident. During a ground run, Maintenance and the Crew were unable to reproduce the fault and the aircraft was returned to service. Two flights later, the ENVIRO FAIL light came on again with a slight burning smell noted. Procedures were followed with the ENVIROS being shutdown and the aircraft returning to CYVQ. Maintenance inspected the aircraft and found the Bleed Air Bypass Valve and Temperature Controller faulty. The units were replaced, ground runs completed and the aircraft returned to service. There have been no further incidents reported.
