NRGreen Power has four waste heat power generation, at Kerrobert, Loreburn, Estlin, and Alameda. Each of these units is capable of producing an average of 5 megawatts (MW) of electricity per hour, enough to power the equivalent of 5,000 homes.
NRGreen Power will be adding a fifth waste heat recovery unit at Alliance’s Windfall compressor station near Whitecourt, Alberta. The project will employ General Electric’s ORegenTM power system to generate 14 MW of electricity per hour, with no new emissions or water use.
The Whitecourt project, which has a mid-2013 target in-service date, will also create approximately 70,000 tonnes of GHG offsets per year.
The installation of the ORegenTM system will be an industry first, and is the best available pre-commercial technology with efficiencies greater than other technologies in this scale.
