EPCOR Utilities has selected Siemens Fuel Gasification Technology to provide the technology for its coal-gasification plant. This is the latest step in EPCOR’s Front End Engineering Design (FEED) of an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant. The project, taking place about 70 miles from Edmonton, has seen $33 million contributed by the Alberta Energy Research Institute, National Resources Canada and EPCOR. This is the second phase of the project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2009.
