York Energy Centre

The York Energy Centre (YEC) is a nominal 400 MW natural gas-fired electricity generating facility. The facility utilizes two Siemens SGT6-PAC 5000F combustion turbines equipped with Ultra Low NOx combustors to reduce NOx emissions. As the collaborative engineer, CHA Canada reviewed interconnect studies for the facility as well as code and industry requirements for its water supply, sanitary and storm sewers, road access and roadways, building and turbine foundations, fire protection and detection systems, gas supply and process piping, protection and coordination, and control systems.
