District Energy and Low Carbon Steam Plants
HH Angus is serving as mechanical and electrical engineers on Creative Energy's two new steam plant projects in downtown Vancouver.
For Creative Energy’s Beatty Plant, the existing gas plant is being replaced entirely by a new gas plant consisting of three 58MW and one 44MW industrial water tube boilers operating at 1.38 MPa (megapascal pressure). The boilers consist of the latest burner technology and FGR (flue gas recirculation), with guaranteed nitrogen oxide emissions of 8.5 parts per million. This plant is being built as part of Phase 1 of the new West Bank Beatty Street development. Careful phasing and design of the new plant on the existing site is required to maintain full operations of the existing plant until switchover can be completed so the plant can continue to serve its clientele of 200 buildings during the construction.
HH Angus is also working with Creative Energy in the development of their new Low Carbon Steam Plant, serving as lead mechanical engineers and medium voltage and low voltage electrical engineers.
The new steam plant is being developed in conjunction with the new West Bank Development at the intersection of Beatty St. and West Georgia and will feature electric boilers. These electric boilers are being introduced by Creative Energy as part of their low carbon strategy.
