Wärtsilä will supply the power generating equipment and associated engineering for the power generation of the Cabin Gas Plant Power Generation Project in British Columbia, Canada.
Wärtsilä will supply three 20V34SG gas engine generator sets that will run on natural gas and generate a combined output of over 26MW.
The power plant will provide power to a natural gas processing plant, producing pipeline-quality gas from shale formations located in Horn River Basin, one of the most prolific shale gas deposits in North America.
The power plant will in turn run on the natural gas processed by this natural gas processing plant.
The engine generator sets and equipment will be delivered in the third quarter of 2011 and the natural gas processing plant is due to be operational in 2012.
