Siemens Energy signs agreement to build first-of-its-kind waste heat-to-power facility in Canada

15 Feb 2021

Siemens Energy has signed an agreement with Canada-based TC Energy to commission a novel waste heat-to-power pilot installation in Alberta, Canada.

The facility will capture waste heat from a gas-fired turbine operating at a pipeline compression station and convert it into emissions-free power. The electricity produced will be put back into the grid– resulting in estimated greenhouse gas reductions of 44,000 tons per year, equivalent to taking more than 9,000 vehicles off the road.

As part of the agreement with TC Energy, Siemens Energy will build, own, and operate the facility, with the option for ownership to be transferred back to TC Energy at a later date.

The new facility is expected to be commissioned toward the end of 2022 and could generate enough electricity to power more than 10,000 homes.
