CO2 stripper rolls into Boundary Dam
Date:23 Dec 2011
A major piece of the $1.24 billion carbon capture and sequestration project rolled into the Boundary Dam Power Station last week.
A carbon dioxide stripper, which weighs roughly 500,000 pounds, was transported to Estevan from Tofield, Alberta on a flatbed trailer that had 224 tires. Due to its weight and size — the unit is 70 feet tall and 26 feet in diameter — it took four trucks to move the stripper to its home as one pulled from the front and provided the navigation while three more pushed from the rear.
