Hundreds of workers are onsite and most of the major equipment has arrived as SaskPower’s Great Plains Power Station project being built here in Moose Jaw hit a major milestone.
The power station is now over halfway finished as it is more than 60 per cent complete.
According to Minister Responsible for SaskPower Don Morgan, there are more than 500 workers onsite each day. About 84 per cent of those workers are from Saskatchewan and 17 per cent are from Moose Jaw.
SaskPower is expecting construction activity will reach its peak later this year with over 600 workers onsite. Construction of the power station began in March of 2021 and it remains on schedule to be completed in 2024.
The Great Plains Power Station will generate 360 megawatts of power through natural gas. The plant will be able to provide power for about 360,000 homes in Saskatchewan.
