  • Two sets of gas-fired turbine generators produce up to 270 megawatts of electricity.
  • Exhaust from the turbines is used to produce steam. Up to 150,000 pounds of steam/hour is used by the Phillips 66 Ferndale oil refinery in its processes.

The plant discharges:
  • Treated process water to the Strait of Georgia through Phillips 66 outfall 001.
