In the power sector, Alberta contributes over 50 percent of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions and as such the Cascade Power Plant is expected to result in one of the largest emissions reduction opportunities in the country’s electricity sector.
“This agreement is a perfect testament to Siemens Energy’s long-term commitment to helping our customers meet their decarbonization goals,” said Jochen Eickholt, Member of the Executive Board of Siemens Energy. “The Cascade Power Plant project will benefit Alberta by not only substantially reducing emissions, but also by providing jobs and other economic benefits to the region.”
“Kineticor is extremely pleased to have Siemens Energy as part of this project,” said Andrew Plaunt, CEO of Kineticor. “The state-of-the-art technology and service they are providing will enable the project to contribute to reducing Alberta’s carbon footprint while providing a reliable source of energy.”
And Arne Wohlschlegel, Managing Director of Siemens Energy Canada, added: “Siemens Energy gas turbine technology is among the most efficient powerful gas turbines in commercial operation and we are proud to be a part of the Cascade Power Plant project that will greatly impact Alberta’s economy and energy supply. We look forward to working with Kineticor and the other partners throughout the project.”
Making a global contribution to decarbonization, Siemens Energy offers all core technologies for a long-term CO2-free energy supply – from power and heat generation by renewable energies or gas-fired power plants, to power transmission and distribution, to efficient electrolysis for hydrogen production.
