We're committed to working with local and Indigenous companies, contractors and workers throughout Saskatchewan on this project.
We anticipate exceeding the local and Indigenous successes from the Chinook Power Station Project. This included over $140 million in local contracts and $10 million in Indigenous-owned contracts. We are just getting started, but to date the Great Plains Project includes over $63 million in participation from local companies and over $11 million in participation from Indigenous-owned companies.
We expect up to 500 workers on the site during peak construction times.

SaskEnergy has started major pipeline construction with Canadian Plains Energy Services. They are building a 30-km transmission pipeline required for the Great Plains Power Station.
We also require a 10-kilometre (km) 230-kilovolt power line for the project. Design, environmental and archaeological assessments, land easements and material procurement are complete. Power line structures were fabricated by JNE Welding in Saskatoon, SK. We’ll construct the line in 2022.
Local and Indigenous Support

Together, SaskPower and Burns & McDonnell strive to provide opportunity to local and Indigenous companies wherever possible. At times, specialized equipment cannot be made in Saskatchewan and have to be procured from out of province. This includes our gas and steam turbines.
