SaskEnergy announces waste heat recovery project in Saskatchewan

SaskEnergy, the provincially owned, natural gas distribution company in the province of Saskatchewan have partnered with Found Energy and Innovative Steam Technologies to capture the waste heat of compressor station engines and convert it to useable electricity. SaskEnergy's aim is to produce more renewable energy than it consumes by 2015.

The $5.7 million CAD waste heat recovery project at the Rosetown and Coleville compressor
stations will capture heat normally vented to the atmosphere through the compressor engines‟ exhaust and convert that energy into electricity which will then be sold back to the SaskPower grid.

Waste heat recovery technology is rapidly developing in Western Canada and it is expected this project will break new ground for gas distribution companies.
