Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Columbus, Chenango County


Project Description:

This Department has received a request to modify a permit and has prepared, pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air State Facility Permit.
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the application for a modification to the Air State Facility Permit. This modification is associated with an expansion at the existing facility, improvements to equipment internal to existing buildings and construction of new structures and appurtenances. The improvements and expansion include the installation of three primary diesel generators, three back-up diesel generators as well as a third boiler. The primary diesel generators will use ultra low sulfur diesel fuel to generate continuous electricity. The back-up generators will also fire ultra low sulfur fuel and operate when one or more of the primary generators are down for maintenance or repair. Each of the generators has a generating capacity of 2 MW. The boilers will limit sulfur emission by limiting fuel sulfur content to 0.2% by weight. Boilers #1 and #2 will have a combined annual operational limit of 9,760 hours per year to limit NOx emissions. The primary generators will comply with NSPS standards for sulfur dioxide emissions by firing on diesel fuel with a sulfur content of not more than 15 parts per million. The facility will maintain records of each fuel shipment to demonstrate compliance with the limits. The backup generators will be limited to operating 200 hours each per year. An hours meter will be installed on each backup generator to ensure compliance. A copy of the draft permit is available for review upon request.
