TransCanada plant begins operations

TransCanada Corp. on May 3 announced that the US$500 million natural gas-fired Coolidge Generating Station is operational. The facility, which was completed on time and on budget, can provide 575 MW of power in 10 minutes on demand. Arizona-based utility Salt River Project has signed a 20-year power purchase arrangement to purchase all the power from the 12 turbine facility.

The project, which began in 2009, created hundreds of construction jobs at its peak and will result in 13 new full-time positions to operate and maintain the facility.
