CALGARY, Nov. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Genalta Power Inc. announces the signing of a second 20 year power purchase agreement with Pengrowth Energy Corporation to convert clean fuel into electricity at their Carson Creek Gas Plant site.
This project is a simple cycle turbine-generator which will use on site clean fuel to dispatch and capture the most profitable electricity prices. This system was specifically designed for the Carson Creek Gas Plant and Oil Production operations to optimize the output and enhance its competitiveness by significantly reducing operating costs.
"We anticipate a successful long term arrangement with Pengrowth Energy Corporation at their Carson Creek Gas Plant." said Graham Illingworth, Genalta Power CEO, "We will convert clean fuel to electricity and assist Pengrowth in reducing the overall operating costs of this plant."
The forecasted commissioning is the end of September 2013 at which time we will sell the power back to Pengrowth Energy Corporation over a 20 year contract.
