Application ID:

2-6308-00513/00012

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application. The existing facility, known as the Bayswater/Jamaica Bay Peaking Facility was originally permitted in November of 2002. The Bayswater/Jamaica Bay Peaking Facility consists of two Pratt & Whitney FT8 Twin Pac simple cycle combustion turbines. The total electrical power per combustion turbine generator is 54.5MW to the electric grid.

Emission Unit: U-00001 (Bayswater) is a combustion turbine which only fires natural gas and operates in simple cycle mode (no heat recovery) to provide electric generation particularly during periods of high demand. Emission Unit: U-00002 is a combustion turbine which only fires low sulfur distillate oil and operates in simple cycle mode (no heat recovery) to provide electric generation particularly during periods of high demand. The combustion turbines utilize water injection and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to control nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and an oxidation catalyst to control emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC).

In 2001 the facility received a State Facility air pollution control permit allowing the construction and operation of the subject facility for the Bayswater Unit and then in 2002 for the Jamaica Bay unit. Pursuant to Sections 201-6.1(a)(4) and 201-6.3(a)(2) of Title 6 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations ("NYCRR"), FPL Energy is required to apply to DEC for a federal operating permit under Title V of the CAA within one year of commencing commercial operation of the facility, which began in November of 2002.

The facility is subject to 6NYCRR Subpart 201-6, Subparts 225-1, 227-1, 227-2, and 40 CFR 60, Subpart GG. In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4©, the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
