Carseland Cogeneration Plant


TransCanada’s Carseland Cogeneration Plant fulfills a dual purpose – powering a factory and helping stabilize the electrical grid for Alberta families – all thanks to natural gas.

The Carseland Cogeneration Plant is part of our network of power generation plants in Alberta. Here’s where you can find us.

Cogeneration is a thermodynamically efficient use of fuel that produces energy. At the Carseland Cogeneration Plant this fuel comes, in part, from industrial waste heat. This waste heat is produced by a wood waste boiler and combined with natural gas-generated steam to run a turbine that produces electricity. Cogeneration plants minimize fuel consumption, save money and can greatly reduce emissions.

The Carseland facility has a capacity of 95 megawatts of electricity with 120 tonnes per hour of steam also produced, which is captured and used to power a factory. The plant is designed to operate at full load, 24 hours per day, year round (except during periods of routine maintenance).

Carseland uses clean-burning natural gas in combustion turbines to produce electricity. The plant is highly fuel-efficient with Dry Low Knox combustion technology to minimize emissions.
