Member Companies, Borealis GeoPower , Alberta Innovates and Climeon Secure a Deal for Canada's First Geothermal Power Plant
Climeon receives the world’s first order for a geothermal power plant in Canada from Borealis GeoPower with support from Alberta Innovates. The order relates to a demonstration project named Sustainaville, in Valemount, British Columbia. It includes delivery of three 150 kW Climeon modules and is valued at approximately EUR 1 000 000.
The municipality of Valemount is situated near the end of a transmission line. The distributed power production from the Climeon Heat Power solution will contribute to Valemount’s economic development by providing additional energy to the area. Borealis GeoPower has conducted extensive field work and is confident that the Climeon Heat Power system can operate at optimal levels even when there are large variations in flow and temperature.
“Geothermal power is an exciting avenue that offers us so much to explore. By bringing this demonstration of renewable power to our country, we have the opportunity to showcase clean reliable energy generation, supporting the transition away from fossil fuels to more sustainable options. Our government is proud to support Borealis and Climeon to discover how this demonstration project may lead to further geothermal energy deployments that will help our country create a brighter future.”
-The Honourable Jim Carr, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources.
