Construction of the peaking station near Culbertson, Mont., began June 29. The power plant will be Basin Electric’s first in the state of Montana. Project Coordinator Dick Shaffer says the peaking facility will be a 95-megawatt capacity, natural gas-fueled peaking station. Shaffer said it will feature the General Electric LMS100® turbine/generator, the same turbine/generator that’s in operation at Basin Electric’s Groton Generation Station, near Groton, SD.
The Culbertson Generation Station is scheduled to be operational in 2010.
