Hi Peter,

Thank you for your question.

We think you may be interested in this answer that was posted earlier.

There are other alternative methods for cooling, which include air cooling and wet surface air coolers. After doing many studies, we believe seawater cooling is the right choice for our Project because it is very efficient, and produces less noise and visual effects than air cooling.

Seawater cooling is also a safe and common way to regulate temperature, especially in the LNG industry.

At Woodfibre, we are designing our seawater cooling system to minimize the potential effects on water quality and on marine life. This includes meeting Canadian legislation (e.g. Fisheries Act) and Fisheries and Ocean’s Canada best management practices.

The chart below contains detailed information about the proposed system.
