Siemens Supplies Compressors For Canadian Carbon Capture Project
Siemens has received an order to deliver two vapor compressors for a post combustion CO2 and SO¬2 capture plant at Unit 3 at SaskPower’s Boundary Dam Power Station near Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada. The contract comes from engineering and construction company SNC-Lavalin in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Canadian utility SaskPower owns 1200 MW coal-fired Boundary Dam power plant. Unit 3 of the plant will be integrated into a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) demonstration project, with the primary goal to generate up to 120 MW of clean baseload electricity while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, said Siemens. It is being designed to capture one million tons of CO2 per year and is scheduled to go into operation in 2014.
Siemens scope of supply includes integrally geared, motor-driven lean vapor compressors, engineered to enable and overall reduction in the steam consumption.
