BPC wins contract to build Cascade power plant in Canada
23 September, 2020
Canada-based power projects developer Kineticor Resource has awarded a contract to BPC to build the 900MW gas-fired Cascade combined cycle power plant in Alberta.
Under the contract, BPC, a joint venture between Black & Veatch and PCL Industrial Management, will be responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the low-carbon natural gas combined cycle generating facility.
Last month, Kineticor along with joint development sponsors, Macquarie Capital and project sponsors OPTrust, Axium Infrastructure and DIF Capital Partners reached financial close for the CAD1.5bn (US$1.14bn) Cascade power project.
Located 12km southwest of Edson in Yellowhead County, Alberta, the power plant is expected to contribute to the province’s transition to a lower-carbon future by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions from traditional power generation.
The facility will be equipped with two SGT6-8000H gas turbines from Siemens Energy in a single-shaft combined cycle configuration and air-cooled condensers to deliver low-emissions power supply.
