Whitetail Peaking Station



Enbridge’s proposed Whitetail Peaking Station would involve construction of a 186-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired simple cycle power generation facility about 16 miles (25 kilometers) northeast of Peace River, AB. The proposed project would use four turbine generator packages with dry low-emission technology, four continuous emission monitoring systems, four step-up transformers, and a two-km natural gas pipeline connecting the facility to the NOVA Gas system.

Enbridge Inc.'s Green Power & Transmission group is proposing to develop the Whitetail Peaking Station approximately 25 kilometres northeast of the Town of Peace River, in Northern Sunrise County. The proposed Station is a 186 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired simple cycle power generation facility, and will provide power to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System during peak times – ensuring adequate power for all of Alberta.

As a quick response peaking facility, the Station will use pipeline quality natural gas transported by NOVA Gas (a subsidiary of TransCanada) on their Alberta system. To ensure this infrastructure is in place, Enbridge is proposing a natural gas pipeline approximately two kilometres in length, and 219 millimeters in diameter to transport the natural gas from NOVA Gas to the Station. A substation adjacent to the Station is also included. Simple cycle gas turbine technology is well proven, uses clean burning natural gas and has a very low environmental impact. Minor additional transmission facilities will also be required to connect the Station to the ATCO transmission line, located immediately west.

Additional major equipment includes:

  • Four turbine generator packages with dry low emissions technology;
  • Four continuous emissions monitoring systems; and
  • Four step-up transformers.

Community Outreach

Enbridge is committed to working with landowners, tenants and other stakeholder groups in a manner that is fair, open and transparent. A participant involvement program for the proposed Project is now underway to build public awareness and understanding, gather community and stakeholder input, and answer questions.

As a developer and operator of linear infrastructure and energy facilities, Enbridge has a well-developed program to build and maintain respectful relationships with its existing and prospective landowners. We have a strong commitment to all the communities in which we live and work, and our approach will be no different with the communities of Northern Sunrise County and the Town of Peace River.
