DIVESTCO AND BIRD RIVER RESOURCES ANNOUNCE COGENERATION JOINT VENTURE TO GENERATE LOW-COST ELECTRICITY
Divestco Inc. and Bird River Resources Inc. have set up a cogeneration joint venture which will convert natural gas to electricity via a boiler-turbine at an industry low cost of 1.4 cents per kilowatt-hour (based on current natural gas spot prices). Regulatory approvals are in place for the cogen system to feed up to three megawatts of electricity into the power grid. The cogen has secured a reliable, long-term gas supply through a privately owned natural gas producer. Construction and implementation of the project are expected to take four to five months.
As an initial end-user, Divestco expects to enter into a long-term agreement to purchase electricity from the cogen to power its computing centre. With the move to more renewable energy sources and the transition away from coal-fired generation in Alberta, electricity costs in the province are expected to trend up resulting in heavy electrical users potentially looking for more cost-efficient options. In addition to Divestco’s intense computing operations, the cogen has identified and is pursuing numerous other opportunities for the excess power generated.
Under the proposed arrangement, Divestco will pay for one-third and Bird River will pay for two-thirds of the cogen project costs with both parties having a 50-per-cent ownership in the completed project.
Stephen Popadynetz, chief executive officer and president of Divestco, commented, “This joint development will allow Divestco to substantially increase its compute power for its regular operations with a highly cost-effective energy solution and an insulation against possible future power pricing spikes.”
Ty Pfeifer, director of Bird River, commented, “This arrangement will not only generate additional revenues for Bird River, it will also provide an additional way of monetizing and leveraging the abundant opportunities available in the depressed natural gas environment in Alberta.”
