SaskPower announced this morning that BD4 and BD5 will not have CCS technology.

SaskPower今天早上宣布BD4和BD5将不再具备CCS技术。


SaskPower announced this morning their decision to not proceed with the plan to retrofit Boundary Dam units 4 and 5 for carbon capture.

SaskPower今天上午宣布他们决定不继续进行改造边界坝4号和5号碳捕集计划。

"They would require significant capital upgrades just to make them able to be attached or compatible to carbon capture and sequestration technology," said Dustin Duncan, Minister in Charge of SaskPower, noting that the units are nearing 50 years old.

“他们需要进行大量的资本升级才能使他们能够与碳捕获和封存技术相连或兼容,”SaskPower负责部长Dustin Duncan表示,他们指出这些设备已接近50年。

“They are smaller sized units, and so we think that there likely would be a better business case with the Shand power plant at some point in the future, so we're doing some feasibility work around Shand," he noted.

“他们是规模较小的单位,因此我们认为未来某个时候Shand发电厂可能会有更好的商业案例,因此我们正在围绕Shand进行一些可行性工作,”他指出。

“When we ran numbers on retrofitting 4 and 5, it just didn't make sense, the business case just wasn't there compared to alternative, like natural gas and other alternatives, which are available into the future," he added.

他补充说:“如果我们继续改造4号和5号,它是没有意义,商业案例与替代品相比并不存在,例如天然气和其他可供选择的替代品。”

He said that the decision will not affect business as usual in the area.

他说,这一决定不会影响该地区的常规业务。

"It really doesn't change," said Duncan. "Boundary Dam 3 is the CCS unit that we have within SaskPower's fleet, and it will continue to operate.”

“这真的不会改变,”Duncan说。 “Boundary Dam 3是我们在SaskPower船队内部的CCS技术单元,它将继续运营。”

Duncan noted that BD3 was affected, however, by a storm that hit the area in late June.

Duncan指出,BD3受到6月下旬袭击该地区的风暴的影响。

“So there's some work being done to make a determination to see when we can get that unit back up and running,” he said. “Once that is determined and fixed, we'll be capturing carbon again."

“因此,我们正在做一些工作,以确定何时可以让该部分恢复运行,”他说。 “一旦确定,我们将再次捕获碳。”

"We've had a great last number of months capturing carbon dioxide and using it in the oil patch in southeast Saskatchewan," said Duncan. “So this decision today on four and five, it doesn't effect Boundary Dam 3, and it doesn't affect the other units as well. We're not closing the door on Poplar 1 and 2 or on Shand, or Boundary Dam 6.”

“在萨斯喀彻温省东南部的油田,我们已经用了好几个月时间来捕获二氧化碳,并利用CO2进行驱油,”Duncan说。 “所以今天关于BD4和BD5的决定,它不会影响边界大坝D3,它也不会影响其他单元部分。我们没有关闭Poplar 1和2或Shand或Boundary Dam 6的大门。“

“The most immediate decision we need to make is on 4 and 5,” he clarified. “So, we've made the decision just based on the fact that there isn't a business case to support the decision, we're not going to be doing CCS on four and five and we'll turn our focus elsewhere."

“我们需要做出的最直接的决定是在BD4和BD5,”他澄清道。 “所以,我们之所以做出这个决定,是因为目前还没有商业案例支持这一决定,我们不会在BD4和BD5做CCS,我们会把注意力转移到其他地方。”

"Coal is going to continue to be an important part of the power mix in Saskatchewan," Duncan noted. "Certainly the BD3 unit will allow us to continue to use coal into the future because of the fact that it does well exceed the emissions standards that are set out by the federal government.”

“煤炭将继续成为萨斯喀彻温省电力结构的重要组成部分,”Duncan指出。 “当然,BD3部门将允许我们继续使用煤炭,因为它确实远远超过了联邦政府制定的排放标准。”

As for the future potential, Duncan said there is time.

至于未来的潜力,Duncan表示有时间。

“We have until 2029 for the other power units that use coal to make decisions whether or not to use CCS. If we don't use CCS, then according to the federal regulations, we have to shut them down.”

“直到2029年,我们还有其他使用煤炭的动力装置决定是否使用CCS。如果我们不使用CCS,那么根据联邦法规,我们必须关闭它们。“

He said the decision also won’t affect how SaskPower does business.

他表示,这一决定也不会影响SaskPower如何开展业务。

"This really doesn't impact the other units, it doesn't impact BD3, and we are doing everything we can to mitigate any job impacts that it might have," he said, adding that the roughly 40 employees at units 4 and 5 will not lose their jobs, nor will the positions close.

“这确实不影响其他部门,它不会影响BD3,我们正在尽一切努力减轻它可能产生的任何工作影响,”他说,并补充说,4号和5号机组的大约40名员工不会失去工作,也不会关闭职位。

"We don't expect any job losses out of SaskPower because of this," said Duncan.

“我们不希望SaskPower因此而失业,”Duncan说。
