Construction has begun on the North Battleford Energy Centre in the Rural Municipality of North Battleford, Saskatchewan. When completed, the  Energy Centre will supply enough electricity to power the equivalent of 260,000 homes in Saskatchewan under a 20-year electricity supply contract with SaskPower.

The facility will consist of a 170-megawatt General Electric gas turbine operating in “combined cycle” with a heat recovery steam generator (large boiler) producing steam for use in a steam turbine that will produce additional electricity for a total capacity of around 260 megawatts.

The North Battleford Energy Centre was chosen in SaskPower’s 2009 request for proposals that sought bids from private companies to build and operate power generating stations to provide electricity exclusively to SaskPower. The project is owned by Northland and will be financed by a syndicate of Canadian and international banks led by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Bank of Montreal, and Union Bank. The plant is being built by Kiewit Construction and is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2013.
