Siemens Energy has received a full notice from York Energy Centre to proceed for the supply of two SGT6-PAC 5000F turbine-generators and supporting turbine auxiliaries for a gas-fired power plant located in the Township of King, Ontario.

The 400MW York Energy Centre power plant will be commissioned in the second quarter of 2012.

This plant will supply power during times of peak demand and provide critical grid support that assists the independent electric system operator in meeting North American grid reliability standards.

Pristine Power president and CEO Jeffry Myers said that the York Energy Centre will play a key role in addressing the need for quick-response peaking generation identified by the Ontario Power Authority for the northern York region, and reducing grid reliance on coal-fired generating capacity.

Pristine Power is the parent company of York Energy Center.
