GE to increase output at cogeneration power plant in Canada

GE (NYSE: GE) was picked to upgrade TransCanada Energy’s 165 MW MacKay River cogeneration plant in Alberta with technology that will increase the plant’s output by up to 4.5 percent.

The project will apply GE’s Advanced Gas Path solution to its natural gas-fired 7FA turbine, which will be complemented by the advanced controls capabilities of several GE OpFlex solutions.

The upgrades are part of a comprehensive GE contractual service agreement that will provide maintenance services to the plant through 2024.
