Stantec has been selected by Quanta Power Generation to provide engineering and design services as part of their engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) team for the new 120 MW combined-cycle thermal power plant to be built in Anchorage, Alaska.
The new power plant, called the George M. Sullivan Plant 2A Expansion Project, is owned by the publicly owned utility, Anchorage Municipal Light & Power. The plant will be designed in a 2 x 1 combined cycle configuration using GE‘s LM6000 combustion-turbine technology. The new plant is expected to use less natural gas and release fewer emissions than traditional thermal plants.
The project has a target completion of the summer of 2016.
Stantec’s power team has worked in all segments of the power and energy market across North America, from traditional coal and gas plants to renewables such as biomass and wind energy. Their projects include not only new plants, but also designing carbon-capture systems and helping power companies decommission and repower older power plants.
