  1. Burns & McDonnell to Build Gas -Fired Plant in Saskatchewan

    By Editors of Power Engineering SaskPower announced they have chosen Burns & McDonnell to design and construct the new 350-MW Chinook Power Station to be located in southwestern Saskatchewan, 100 miles north of the border between Canada and the U.S. Pending environmental approval, construction on the station could begin as early as late 2016, with the plant entering service by late 2019. Mike Marsh, president and CEO of SaskPower, Saskatchewan’s leading energy supplier, said the Chinook Power Station will allow the company to meet a growing demand for power in the province. Burns & McDonnell teamed with the SaskPower engineering group in submitting the winning bid as part of a competitive bid process that attracted five competing proposals from independent power providers. As the EPC contractor, Burns & McDonnell will work closely with SaskPower engineers and construction management staff on all phases of the project. The combined-cycle facility will feature a Siemens F-Class gas turbine, a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and a Siemens steam turbine. Chinook Power Station’s combined cycle operation will use exhaust heat that would otherwise be lost in a simple cycle configuration. The hot exhaust from the initial cycle will be captured to boil water into steam in the HRSG and spin an additional second generator to produce more power. The combined cycle unit will also significantly reduce water usage thanks to a plant design that will incorporate advanced air cooling to minimize water usage. Natural gas for the plant will be supplied under a long-term contract with TransGas, a subsidiary of SaskEnergy, via a large-capacity pipeline that runs near the plant site. At its peak, construction will employ up to 500. Regular operations when the plant is finished will employ 25. "We're very gratified by the confidence SaskPower has shown in us," says Chris Lehan, Vice President of Energy in Canada for Burns & McDonnell. "We have a track record of taking on the most complex power projects in the industry under difficult and challenging conditions and take great pride in coming through for our clients."
