CHP for Canadian hospital

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC), located in Canada’s northwestern Ontario, is commissioning a new combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

Developed by Thunder Bay Hydro and Johnson Controls, the facility is due to be operational by the end of this year.  

The CHP plant will produce over 15,000 MWh of power and more than 50,000 MMBTU of heat per year. Additionally, the new plant also provides supplemental on-site generated electrical power in the event of an extended power outage and is expected to save the hospital some $500,000 annually in energy expenditure.

Anne-Marie Heron, Executive Director of Capital Planning and Operations, TBRHSC, commented: ‘The CHP project is expected to provide major energy and financial savings for TBRHSC that can be diverted to support patient care.’
