This 800-MW natural-gas-fired power plant will produce energy via two natural gas turbines and one steam turbine. The gas turbines are each capable of producing 240 MW, and the steam turbine is capable of producing up to 320 MW. The waste heat produced from the gas turbines will be captured and used to produce steam for the third turbine.

In 2013, Capital Power Corp. purchased a 50-per-cent share in the centre, so now Capital Power and Enmax have a joint venture agreement to build, own, and operate the facility. Construction began in July 2011, and in July 2014, Enmax applied for an extension on its construction deadline due to some earlier delays. However, the plant is still expected to be completed on schedule and begin operations in 2015.
