During the month of June, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) facility at the Boundary Dam Power Station captured 27,352 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), SaskPower said Friday.
The average daily capture rate when CCS was online was 1,823 tonnes per day, with a peak one-day capture of 2,305 tonnes.
The CCS facility was online 43.3 per cent of the month, coming offline for 408 hours for a scheduled outage that started June 7. The shutdown occurred to inspect and clean the equipment as well as perform some upgrades in the plant.
Unit 3 produced an average of nearly 110 megawatts of power during the month.
The CCS facility has captured 321,717 tonnes of CO2 so far this year, and more than 3.4 million tonnes of CO2 since it came online in October 2014.
