BowArk okayed for change to Queenstown power project in Alberta

BowArk Energy Ltd. was approved March 15 by the Alberta Utilities Commission for an amendment to the Queenstown power plant that would allow it to install generating units that are different than those previously approved and which would increase the capability of the power plant from 90 MW to 94 MW.

BowArk Energy had a November 2015 approval to construct and operate a 90-MW plant designated as the Queenstown power plant in the Vulcan area.

BowArk proposed that the power plant would now consist of five 18.76-MW simple-cycle natural gas-fueled reciprocating generating units with a total capability of 94 MW. The previously-approved power plant was to consist of two 45-MW natural gas turbines with a total capability of 90 MW.
