Canada : NRGreen joins forces with GE to turn waste heat into energy.

An affiliate of Calgary-based Alliance Pipeline Ltd., NRGreen Power Limited Partnership has joined forces with GE Oil & Gas to set up the industrial giant s first ORegen System for waste heat electricity production. Already, NRGreen runs waste heat units at four of the pipeline firm s natural gas compressor stations in Saskatchewan.

Climate Change and Emissions Management Corp. partially financed the $75 million project, which is its first in Alberta.

The Whitecourt Recovered Energy Project takes exhaust heat from Alliance s compressor stations northwest of Edmonton. The heat, which is moved into a closed loop system, powers one of three 40,000-horsepower gas turbines at the location. The power system produces 14 megawatts of baseload power. It is likely to be connected into the provincial power grid in May this year.

The system takes waste heat and changes it into electrical energy without generating extra greenhouse gas emissions. It moreover makes use of cyclopentane as its primary power generation fluid, which needs less energy to condense than normal pentane and utilizes no water in the system. Already, NRGreen is making plans to set up similar systems along Alliance s 3,700-kilometer pipeline system.
