Carbon and Energy

In 2004, a heat exchanger was installed at the turbine exhaust in order to supply a 40°C water circuit and bring 2GJ/hour of thermal energy to the TOHU building located nearby. This energy source allows 20% to 35% savings compared to conventional heating and emits no greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

This project is the first step of future district heating project for homes within 5 km of the power plant. Studies indeed demonstrate that the plant can recover approximately 250 GJ/hour of residual heat from the cooling tower and the chimney when they are operating at full capacity, therefore generating GHG reductions equivalent to 35 000 tons of CO2 each year.
