clean, reliable energy

for Ontario

 


Project Description

Greenfield South Power Corporation, together with its affiliate Eastern Power Limited, is developing a natural gas-fired combined cycle electricity generating facility with a capacity of approximately 300 MW. The plant will be built in the St. Clair Township, Ontario on a site on Oil Springs Line near Greenfield Road. 

Greenfield South has a 20 year Clean Energy Supply Agreement with the Ontario Power Authority, and the project is included in the province’s clean energy, “off coal” plan.  As a part of the “off coal” plan the plant will contribute to improving air quality in St. Clair Township.

Major equipment includes one combustion turbine, one heat recovery steam generator, and one steam turbine. Plant cooling will be by wet mechanical draft cooling tower.  Natural gas will be the only fuel source for the facility.

The plant will utilize existing transmission infrastructure, local to the plant. The plant will be connected to an existing Hydro One 230 kV circuit to feed generation into the Ontario electricity system administered by the Independent Electricity System Operator.

This project will be creating new jobs in the local area.  Over the course of construction approximately 350 jobs will be added, and during operation of the plant 35 permanent jobs will be required.
