Alstom steam tail at plant

1 June 2010– Kiewit Corp. selected Alstom equipment that will add 100 MW of steam generated power to a new natural-gas-fired combined cycle power plant being built in Saskatchewan by Northland Power of Toronto, which will own the facility.

The contract includes supplying a steam tail and Alstom’s Alspa 6 turbine control system. The steam tail, which includes a 100 MW steam turbine, a generator and a heat recovery steam generator, will bring the plant’s total power output to 285 MW.

All power produced by the plant will be sold under a 20-year power purchase agreement with SaskPower for 261 MW of electricity. Construction is expected to begin in July and operations are scheduled to begin in 2013.
