Stelco, DTE to Build Cogen Plant

6/19/2020 - Stelco Inc. is partnering with DTE Energy Services Inc. on construction of a 65-MW cogeneration plant at the steelmaker’s Lake Erie Works in Ontario, Canada, Stelco has announced. 

Under the agreement, DTE will provide the capital for plant, and Stelco will pay DTE a fixed annual fee under a 20-year energy services agreement. Construction is to start this summer, and the plant is to come on-line in the first half of 2022. 

“Once operational, the cogen plant is expected to reduce Stelco's energy costs and further enhance the utilization of Stelco's process-generated offgases,” Stelco said.
