Siemens to Supply Turbines and Equipment for Saskatchewan Power Plant


By Editors of Power Engineering

Burns & McDonnell Canada has reached out to Siemens for a gas turbine, a steam turbine, generators and related electrical equipment for SaskPower’s Chinook Power Station.

The combined-cycle Chinook, planned near Swift Current, Saskatchewan, will have a capacity of 350 MW when it opens in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The SGT6-5000F gas turbine, SST-900 steam turbine, SGen6-1000A generator and SGen6-100A generator will be produced in Goerlitz and Erfurt, Germany and Charlotte, North Carolina.  

SaskPower announced Chinook last month, noting the plant will allow the company to meet a growing demand for power in the province.
