A combined cycle power plant, Chinook Swift has "a Siemens SGT6-5000F gas turbine generator, a Siemens SST6-900 steam turbine generator, and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). The HRSG will be a horizontal, natural circulation, three-pressure, reheat-type generator."[5]

SaskPower reported in August 2019 that the plant was near completion: "We've fired up the Gas Turbine for the first time and synchronized it to grid. Steam blows were done with gas turbine output between 20MW and 45MW."[6]
