Houston-based American Electric Technologies Inc. (AETI) reports it has been selected by a power generation equipment company to provide an integrated electrical protection and controls solution for the power generation, distribution and control of a new 65 MW peaking power plant in Alberta, Canada.

The name of the client and terms of the contract were not disclosed, but AETI says it expects to ship the power distribution control systems in the third quarter of this year.

The 10 generator sets onsite at the Alberta plant utilize natural gas to generate 65 MW of electricity. AETI says its power distribution and control systems will provide generator synchronization, fault protection, and management of power to run the plant and integrate with the grid. Additionally, all operations can be performed locally, from the common control and SCADA panel, or remotely from an existing main control room.
