Delivering a complex geothermal system to support Kingston’s historic Grain Elevator Pier

In Kingston’s Cataraqui Bay, Enbridge Sustain enrolled the Aecon Green Energy Solutions team in delivering a geothermal heating and cooling system to provide energy-efficient, year-round comfort for two new condominium towers. Continue reading below.

518

Condo units

The system will provide renewable geothermal heating and cooling to residents of 518 units across the two condominium towers.

149

Drilling boreholes

Underground infrastructure for this project requires the drilling of ~150 boreholes.

450

-Foot depth

To effectively draw energy and accommodate complex site conditions, the geothermal system reaches a depth equal to 1.5 football fields.

This was part of Enbridge Sustain’s end to end energy solutioning (including design, installation, financing and maintenance) being offered to Kingston Waterfront Development Ltd.

The system’s technical design was challenging for a multi-unit residential building project due to the site’s complexities. The two 19- and 23-storey condominiums will be built on a pier that extends into Lake Ontario, which means a thick concrete “raft” slab foundation and water management complications due to proximity to the lake.

After investigating and evaluating potential approaches, our team arrived at a safe and effective technical solution. The underground infrastructure would be offset from the location of the buildings, and the system would utilize a closed-loop approach to mitigate the impact of any inconsistent sub-surface water.

To deliver this project, we are leveraging the expertise and capabilities of Aecon’s in-house GeoExchange Systems team to drill 149 boreholes at a depth of 450 feet.

Bringing Geothermal Energy to more than 70 Homes

In Barrie, Ontario, Sean Mason homes signed up for Enbridge Sustain’s end to end energy solutioning (including design, installation, financing and maintenance) to offer geothermal to its customers in a new development. Enbridge Sustain called upon Aecon Green Energy Solutions to leverage its unique mobile drilling solution to deliver an effective geothermal energy installation in this neighbourhood development.

Upgrading a commercial space for up to 5X more energy efficiency

In Delaware, Ontario, the Aecon Green Energy Solutions team was called upon to support the renovation of a large commercial building with a renewable geothermal system for heating and cooling. Continue reading below.
