The Boundary Dam power plant is SaskPower's chosen site for an integrated carbon capture and storage (ICCS) demonstration facility. SaskPower awarded three separate contracts to develop a FEED package and Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) proposal for such an installation. From this competition, Kent was selected as the EPC contractor in January 2010.
The scope of work involves design and construction of CO2 and SO2 capture plant with integration to defined power plant tie points including a Heat Rejection System and Compression Balance of Plant. Plant also includes a 60 t/d sulfuric acid plant to convert the capture of SO2.
The Boundary Dam ICCS project is currently the largest post-combustion CO2 capture and storage project in the world, with product CO2 to be utilized in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) applications.
