TECHNOLOGY The 12 MW system features four
GE-Jenbacher JMS 620 gas engines as well as heat recovery and exhaust
treatment equipment, noise abatement and systems controls. The cogeneration
plant operates with a system efficiency better than 93% and will provide
enough electricity to the Ontario grid to power approximately 15,000
Canadian homes. The province gets a clean and reliable electricity source,
while Great Northern Hydroponics gets the heat (for warming the greenhouses)
and CO2 (for plant fertilization); it is a win-win situation.
