Alberta okays 20-MW, gas-fired Jenner project of NAT-3

The Alberta Utilities Commission on Nov. 8 approved an application from NAT-3 GP Inc. to construct and operate the 20-MW Jenner power plant.

Said the Nov. 8 order: “After consideration of the record of the proceeding, and for the reasons outlined in this decision, the Commission finds that approval of the project is in the public interest having regard to the social, economic, and other effects of the project, including its effect on the environment.”

NAT-3 filed an application with the AUC for an approval to construct and operate this 20-MW power plant, and also applied to connect the power plant to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System. The plant would consist of ten 2-MW natural gas-fueled synchronous generators. The plant would be located in the Jenner area, northeast of Brooks.

NAT-3 stated that the plant would connect to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System via the FortisAlberta Inc. 25-kV distribution system. It will utilize selective catalytic reduction to reduce NOx emissions.
