Brighton Beach Generating Station
The Brighton Beach Generating Station is a 580 megawatt natural gas-fired power station located on the banks of the Detroit River in the City of Windsor. ATCO Power Ltd. and Ontario Power Generation are partners in the plant that features state-of-the-art combined-cycle technology. The electricity produced at the station is controlled and marketed by Coral Energy Canada Inc., an independent power marketer and member of the global Shell Trading network. Coral provides natural gas fuel required to operate the facility.
This environmentally progressive station consists of two large industrial gas turbines and a single steam turbine, which combine to achieve high efficiency and low emissions. The combined-cycle process uses the waste heat from the gas turbines to generate steam for the steam turbine, which
significantly increases power production efficiency.
