Chinook Power Station

Client: Swift Current
Location: Saskatchewan, Canada

Summary

The Chinook Power Station is a thermal electric generating facility that will provide 345 MW of natural gas generation to the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. The project involves a single gas turbine generator, a triple pressure heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), a steam turbine generator, an air-cooled condenser, and two generator step-up transformers. Other plant components include a combined water treatment/maintenance shop/warehouse/administration building and a new switchyard connecting the facility to a new transmission line being brought to the site.

We are providing engineer-procure-construct (EPC) services, including:

  • Engineering design of all equipment, plant systems and plant facilities
  • Equipment and construction subcontract procurement
  • Project management, site construction management, and quality control and safety management
  • Facility commissioning and startup
The gas turbine generator, HRSG, steam turbine generator and associated auxiliary equipment, piping and electrical are housed in an engineered power generator building. The process water used in the steam cycle will be generated using an on-site water treatment plant, and steam from the process is being condensed via an air-cooled condenser.

Plant wastewaters will be routed to an on-site evaporation pond. To facilitate the on-site construction schedule, a number of plant components are going to be fabricated and assembled off-site and shipped to the project site in larger pieces, including pipe rack modules, air cooled condenser cells, stair tower, heat recovery steam generator stack and water storage tanks.
