This 141-megawatt power station was constructed to expand the existing power grid in Saskatchewan. This new power station required the installation of new switchgear lineups, cable tray, switchyard structures, new communications and security systems, complete ground grid, high-voltage equipment, fire suppression system, instrumentation and high-voltage bus, and power and control cabling in underground conduits. All of these elements combined to offer the necessary power, control, and protection systems for a fully functional power station.
The client’s goal was to have this new station and the corresponding high-voltage distribution tie into the existing Saskatchewan power grid. PCL Intracon Power Inc. appreciated the client’s need for the timely resolution of technical issues that arose during the project, and as such utilized various onsite and corporate resources to ensure successful, on-time completion of the power station.
