OFF-SITE PREFABRICATION MAINTAINS PROJECT SCHEDULE
Due to the area’s rugged winters, off-site prefabrication was crucial to the project delivery approach, and helped maintain a timely project schedule.
Southwest Saskatchewan in Canada is home to a varied landscape of fields, rivers and rolling hills. The region is also known for its cold, rugged winters.
Regulations in Saskatchewan are phasing out conventional coalfired generation and requiring the integration of intermittent renewables. SaskPower, the province’s sole energy provider, sought to provide cleaner energy to the surrounding area by constructing the Chinook Power Station, a new 353-megawatt natural gas-fired power facility.
SaskPower needed an engineer-procure-construct (EPC) team that could maintain and progress the project schedule, despite the area’s brutal winters.
