Coke Boiler Replacement Project

The Coke Boiler Replacement Project will be located at Suncor’s Oil Sands Base Plant, 25 kilometres north of the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta. It will be constructed within the existing footprint of Base Plant Operations.

The Project involves the replacement of three aging petroleum coke-fired boilers with two highly efficient natural gas cogeneration units. The use of cogeneration will generate approximately 800 megawatts (MW) of reliable, low cost, low-carbon power to the Alberta Interconnected Electrical System.
