The Canyon Power Project provides electricity for the City of Anaheim and over 150,000 residents during peak periods, especially during the hot and humid summer months.
The plant was designed by SCPPA and the owner’s engineer, PB Power, and allows Anaheim to increase its power availability and be independent from out-of-state power and transmission lines. The SCPPA wanted a plant that would allow quick responses to changing power needs for its customers and promote cleaner, more reliable energy generation. The SCPPA stated that the project “Has the power capability to make a difference between forcing customers to turn off their electricity use completely versus using electricity more wisely during the hot summer months.”
Canyon Power is one example of the expertise Barton Malow offers to our energy clients; cleaner, more reliable energy generation plants that are designed to save the owner, and the end-users, money. Cleaner energy plants like Canyon Power, which will be powered by natural gas, offer end-users dependability. As the SCPPA stated, “The Canyon Power Project has the power production capability to make a difference between forcing customers to turn off their electricity use completely versus using electricity more wisely during the hot summer months.”
The unique site required precise scheduling and planning; it is located in a tight urban setting with adjacent businesses and surrounding residential neighborhoods and is enclosed with a 20’ masonry wall. Safety and comfort for business-owners and residents were our number one priority when showing our capabilities to the client and our specific safety plan, developed for SCPPA using our proven safety program, ensure the safety and comfort of everyone involved both on an off the project.
This 200 MW combustion turbine simple-cycle generating plant consists of four (4) GE LM6000 PC Sprint CTG package units, four (4) emission control modules (ECM), four (4) continuous emissions monitors (CEMS) and four (4) generation step-up transformers which will be comprised of four (4) power islands. The 10 acre site will be surrounded by a 20' high perimeter wall and will also house a cooling tower, water treatment facility, fuel gas compressor station, field erected tanks and a 14,000 SF plant operations with warehouse.
Burns and Roe acting as a subcontractor to Barton Malow, is providing engineering and procurement services as well as start-up and commissioning.
