The Alberta Utilities Commission is out for comment until Sept. 26 on an application from NAT-3 GP Inc. to construct and operate a 20-MW plant that would consist of ten 2-MW natural gas-fueled generators.

NAT-3 GP has also requested approval to connect the power plant to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System via FortisAlberta Inc.’s distribution network.

The facility will have ten Cummins N6C 2,000-kW units for a total capability of 20MW/20MVA. The generator units will be fueled from a commercial grade natural gas pipeline to be supplied at the proposed project site.
