BD3 Status Update: June 2017
July 6, 2017
As previously communicated, there was a planned outage during the entire month of June to address regularly scheduled maintenance at the Boundary Dam 3 power unit as well as the carbon capture facility. The work included cleaning and inspecting the carbon capture facility and applying a number of new technical and mechanical fixes that will further improve efficiency and reliability. On the power side, a number of mechanical issues were addressed as planned.
The power plant is scheduled to come back online early July. The carbon capture facility is expected back online in mid-July.
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.
