In a monthly project update released this week, privately-held Bow City Power Ltd. (BCP) announced that Fluor Canada Ltd. has joined the engineering team for its proposed 1,000-megawatt coal-fired power plant just outside Calgary.

The planned $2.9 billion facility will capture one million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually by utilizing a supercritical combustion that embodies the next generation of clean coal plants.

Fluor will first work with BCP’s engineers and mine planners to ensure all Bow City project designs are up to date and proven to work reliably and safely. Fluor will also conduct a complete review of the project’s environmental control technologies with particular emphasis on carbon capture and storage.

BCP president Brian Bietz outlined in the release that while financing the $3 billion project remains a big hurdle the company has recently entered into an agreement with Kensington Capital Partners Limited. Kensington has committed to financially supporting the Bow City project and is actively working on creating a syndicate of other potential investors. BCP’s goal is to have financing in place by late summer/early fall.
