The HR Milner Expansion Project will be located next to the existing 150 MW HR Milner Generating Station. It will use supercritical pulverized coal technology, a steam turbine generator, air emissions control technology and an electrical substation.

Construction is expected to begin in summer 2012 and commissioning is expected three years later.
