BD3 Status Update: July 2017
August 9, 2017
The previously communicated planned outage at the carbon capture facility is continuing. Additional work included replacing packing in the stripper tower and work to repair vibration issues on the CO2 compressor. The capture facility will be brought back online and resume normal operations once work is complete.
Other work completed during the outage included upgraded measurement systems, upgrades to ash removal and cleaning systems, mechanical cleaning of heat exchangers, addition of performance instruments and additions/upgrades of heat transfer systems.
The work on the power side was completed as scheduled.
A full update on the performance of BD3 will be posted next month. For previous updates or more information on SaskPower’s power future, visit www.saskpower.com/blog.
