Queens County

Applicant:

TC Ravenswood LLC
110 Turnpike Rd Ste 203
Westborough, MA 01581

Facility:

Ravenswood Generating Station
38-54 Vernon Blvd
Queens, NY 11101

Application ID:

2-6304-00024/00039

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County


Project Description:

RENOTICE: This application was originally noticed in the ENB on 6/10/09. The applicant resubmitted the application to include startup, shutdown and fuel switching NOx emission data and requests for associated NOx emission limits to be included in the Title V permit under Part 201-6. The total emission cap remains the same. The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal with modifications to include a Clean Air Interstate Rule modification and CO2 Budget Trading Program and Greenhouse Gas Initiative Requirements, and to allow the startup, shutdown and fuel switching referred to above.
The facility consists of one GE 7FA combustion turbine, one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) equipped with a duct burner for supplemental firing and one steam turbine. The plant will have a nominal generating capacity of approximately 250 megawatts.

This modification includes conditions recently promulgated under regulation 6 NYCRR Parts 243, 244 and 245 that require facilities to obtain/possess at least as many allocations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) as they emit into the atmosphere during a specified period of time. An allocation is a unit of pollution which is limited by a budget established by the regulations. The Department developed these regulations in response to the United States Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR). The regulations are included in New York's State Implementation Plan (SIP) which has been approved by EPA as required by the Clean Air Act of 1990. In addition, 6 NYCRR Part 242 has been added under CO2 Budget Trading Program and Greenhouse Gas Initiative Requirements.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.4(c), 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.
