The gas-fired plant will be equipped with two Siemens 501 D gas turbines, which will be manufactured at the company's plant in Hamilton, Canada, and two generators will come from Siemens manufacturing plant in Erfurt, Germany. The company will also supply the Teleperm XP instrumentation and control equipment, and the two heat-recovery steam generators.
