The facility will provide peaking power to the Saskatchewan power grid under a 25-year power purchase agreement with Saskatchewan Power Corp (SaskPower). It was built through a joint venture between Aecon Group and Black & Veatch Corp.

The plant uses two GE (NYSE: GE) LM 6000 natural gas-fired simple-cycle turbines. Construction on the plant began in June 2010 and was completed within budget and ahead of schedule.
