Facilities – Noise Impact – Noise Mitigation
Wilson Creek Energy Corp. (“WCEC”) filed applications for approval to construct and operate an 8.8 megawatt (“MW”) natural-gas-fired power plant and connect it to the FortisAlberta Inc. electric distribution system (collectively, the “Project”). The power plant would be located adjacent to the existing Tamarack Wilson Creek sweet gas processing plant on 0.25 hectares of private land, already cleared for industrial purposes.
The AUC approved the application to construct and operate the Wilson Creek Power Plant and to connect it to the FortisAlberta Inc. electric distribution system, subject to the implementation of noise mitigation measures before construction commencement and a post-construction comprehensive sound level survey to be conducted.
