BD3 Status Update: October 2021

November 12, 2021

Employees working inside the Carbon Capture facility.

During the month of October 2021, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) facility at Boundary Dam Power Station captured 30,375 tonnes of carbon dioxide after coming back online following the successful compressor motor repair. The average daily capture when CCS was online was 2,738 tonnes per day with a peak one-day capture of 3,035 tonnes. CCS ran for 11 days before a cooler leak forced the compressor back offline for the remainder of the month. The leak has since been repaired and the CCS is operating normally.
