GE Signs Two Contracts With Northland Power

Posted on August 4, 2010

GE has signed two contracts totaling US$87 million (€66.2 million) with Northland Power, an independent power producer based in Toronto, Canada, to supply power generation equipment and commissioning services for two natural-gas-fired power plants.

With two requests for proposals in Saskatchewan, Canada, SaskPower, a Canadian utility, selected Northland Power to provide 261 MW of base load power and 87 MW of peaking power. GE will supply its 7FA heavy-duty gas turbine for the North Battleford baseload power plant and two LM6000-PF aeroderivative gas turbines for the Spy hill peaking plant.

According to SaskPower, there are two factors creating the need for new electrical supply sources. There is a need to retire or extend the life of select generating units along with a growing demand for electricity in Saskatchewan. Based on those factors, SaskPower will have to rebuild, replace or obtain about 4100 MW of power by 2030.
