The Bluewater Energy Park is a fully serviced 108.5 hectare (268 acre) site located on the St. Clair River in Sarnia. The park is able to provide steam and electrical power from TransAlta’s Sarnia Regional Cogeneration Plant at favourable prices.
At present, the park has 68.8 hectares (170 acres) available for the development of new manufacturing.
Bluewater Energy Park is owned by TransAlta, Canada’s largest publicly traded generator and marketer of electricity and renewable power. TransAlta’s Sarnia Regional Cogeneration Plant is the largest Cogeneration plant in Canada and is located on the southern perimeter of the Park.
The Park’s western boundary is the St. Clair River, with a deep water dock facility that provides access, through the St. Lawrence Seaway, to ships on the Great Lakes system and international oceanic cargo. The site is also serviced with rail service from CSX rail with interswitch to CN rail which connect to markets in Canada and the U.S. via the St. Clair Rail Tunnel.
