CHA Canada recently hosted a plant tour of the Thorold Cogeneration Project, where the company has provided various engineering services, including review of EPC Contractors design and acting as the OPA’s Independent Engineer. This tour, arranged by CHA Canada’s Saqib Khattak, was a mentoring and learning experience for many of CHA Canada’s new employees, including administrative staff, junior engineers and designers. They were able to witness firsthand the results of CHA Canada’s project work and learn more about the variety of exciting cogeneration development services the firm provides to its clients.
The plant – which is located just 15 minutes from the CHA Canada office – is a cogeneration facility with a natural gas-fired 170 MW industrial gas turbine and associated heat recovery steam generator and a 95 MW steam turbine generator. The electricity is sold into the Ontario electricity market and process steam is used by Abitibi-Consolidated mill. The plant has two auxiliary boilers, fired by natural gas and landfill gas from a nearby site.
CHA Canada continues to provide related on-site and off-site engineering services to Northland Power.
