Fluor partners on supercritical plant

Fluor Canada Ltd. joined the engineering team for a planned $2.9 billion (US$3.02 billion), 1,000 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant near Calgary.

The plant is being developed by Bow City Power Ltd. and is one of the first in Canada to incorporate carbon capture in its design. The plant is expected to capture 1 million tons of carbon dioxide each year.

Fluor will review the project’s environmental control technologies with emphasis on carbon capture and storage.

Bow City president Brian Bietz said that while financing the project remains a big hurdle the company has recently entered into an agreement with Kensington Capital Partners Limited. Kensington has committed to financially supporting the Bow City project and is actively working on creating a syndicate of other potential investors.
