Fluor selected for SaskPower carbon capture engineering

By Gerald Ondrey |

Fluor Corp. (Irving, Tex.; www.fluor.com) announced today that it was awarded front-end engineering for CO2 capture for the SaskPower Boundary Dam Integrated Carbon Capture and Sequestration Demonstration project in Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada. The contract value for the first quarter award was not disclosed. If the project proceeds as planned, it would be the first commercial-scale carbon-capture system used on a coal-fired power plant in North America. SaskPower’s project will transform the aging Unit 3 at Boundary Dam Power Station into a reliable, long-term producer of clean electricity while enhancing provincial oil production and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This leading-edge project will determine the technical, economic and environmental performance of carbon capture and storage technology. “Fluor is looking forward to demonstrating the benefits of our commercially-proven carbon capture technology,” said Dave Dunning, president of Fluor’s Power Group. "Fluor is a leader in the power industry and our industry-proven Econamine FG Plus SM technology is just one example of our commitment to client needs.” The front-end engineering involves the preparation of a detailed process design,…
