Black & Veatch, in partnership with a Canadian constructor, is providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for ENMAX Energy’s new Shepard Energy Centre. This 800 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired combined cycle facility uses the most advanced natural gas technologies available in the marketplace today. It will provide reliable electricity for over half of Calgary’s 1.2 million metropolitan residents.
“ENMAX Energy is going through a phase where the existing coal-fired facilities will be retired over the next 15 years. That represents about 60 percent of our current generation in the province of Alberta. So, gas-fired plants like Shepard Energy Centre will be a good first start in replacing aging infrastructure. This will also improve our overall emissions profiles while providing a safe and reliable course of electric generation.”
David Rehn, Executive Vice President, Generation, ENMAX Corporation
