Overview

The Kirkland Lake baseload plant has three wood-waste-fuelled combustors integrated with three boilers; three gas-fired turbine-generator sets coupled with heat-recovery steam generators and two steam turbine-generators. In aggregate, biomass fuels about 12.5 MW of the facility’s capacity, and natural gas fuels the rest.

The facility was expanded in 2004 with the addition of a 30 MW gas-fired peaker that operates independently of the baseload plant.
