Employees working inside the Carbon Capture facility.

As previously reported, the Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) facility at the Boundary Dam Power Station was offline in April for planned maintenance. Planned maintenance is important to ensure the safe, reliable and efficient operations at CCS, BD3 and all of SaskPower’s generation facilities. The maintenance work included cleaning and inspecting the facility, disassembling the compressor and making minor mechanical fixes. Unit 3 at the power station also underwent maintenance during this time.

The facility returned to service on May 7. Regular performance updates will resume next month.
