AltaGas Ltd. applied May 17 to the Alberta Utilities Commission for approval to interconnect a planned, 95-MW power plant to the grid.
The proposed Kent 328S substation will be fully funded by AltaGas. The transmission system development to integrate the Kent 328S substation will be the subject of a separate ATCO Electric facility and interconnection application.
AltaGas has submitted a System Access Service Request (SASR) to the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) to connect its proposed AltaGas Kent Energy Generation Facility to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System (AIES). The project is located in the Cold Lake area. The scheduled In-Service Date for the project is Nov. 1, 2017.
AltaGas plans to install two, 50-MW LM6000 natural gas turbines each connected to a Brush BDAX290ERJT model generator. Net output of the project would be 95 MW.
