ATCO Power Canada Plans New 96-MW Gas Plant


By Editors of Power Engineering

ATCO Power Canada Ltd. announced they've won approval for construction on a 96-MW gas-fired power plant immediately northeast of Fort Saskatchewan.

The plant, subject to approval by the Alberta Utilities Commission, would consist of two 48-MW gas turbine generators. Assuming timely approval, construction is scheduled to be finished by October 31, 2020.

In supplemental materials for the project, which has been named the Strathcona Cogeneration Plant, ATCO notes the plant would help support a new propane dehydrogenation facility planned by Williams Canada Propylene ULC. Excess electricity will be sold into the Alberta electricity market.

Additionally, ATCO seeks construction approval for a new substation to be named Strathcona Cogeneration Plant Substation, this one northeast of Fort Saskatchewan.

The substation will consist of two 240/1.8 KV 48/64/80 MV-ampere transformers and two 240KV circuits 200 meters in length. This project is also scheduled for completion on Oct. 31, 2020.
