HR Milner Generating Station
The Milner 2 (“M2”) power plant is a 204 MW state-of-the-art natural gas-fired turbine generator located at the HR Milner Generating Station site near Grande Cache, Alberta. The M2 unit was commissioned in June 2020 and is the largest simple cycle natural gas-fired power plant in Alberta.
Having previously procured the HRSG, the M2 unit has the option to increase its capacity in combined cycle to approximately 300 MW and lower its operating costs significantly.
The HR Milner Generating Station (“Milner 1” or “M1”), located near Grande Cache, Alberta, is a 150 MW dual fuel steam turbine generator capable of burning both natural gas and coal. Milner 1 is currently permitted to run at a 9% capacity factor until December 31, 2029.
As a result of commissioning M2, M1 has been laid up with the option to restart at a later date as a stand-alone unit or in combined cycle operation with Milner 2.
Power produced from M2 and M1 is sold to the Alberta Electric System Operator (“AESO”).
