Saskatchewan Power (SaskPower) will invest more than C$550 million ($533.8 million) to add 200 MW of capacity to the company’s 430 MW Queen Elizabeth natural gas-fired power plant in Saskatoon.

The project includes three, 35 MW natural gas turbines, six steam generators and a steam turbine designed to produce 95 MW of power. The new equipment is expected to begin operations in 2015.

SaskPower commissioned three gas generating units at Queen Elizabeth in 2010, bringing the plant’s generating capacity up to 430 MW. The latest planned upgrade will increase it to 630 MW.
