ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 05/15/2013

Orange County

Applicant:

Competitive Power Ventures Inc
50 Braintree Hill Office Park
Suite 300
Braintree, MA 02184

Facility:

CPV Valley Energy Center
US Rte 6 , Rte 17 and Interstate 84
Middletown, NY

Application ID:

3-3356-00136/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Wawayanda, Orange County

Project Description:

The CPV Valley Energy Center (CPV) will consist of a combined cycle natural gas powered electric generating facility nominally rate at 630 megawatts (MW) and interconnection substation. The CPV facility will generate nominally 630 MW of electricity, fueled primarily by natural gas. The CPV facility will use ultra-low sulfur distillate oil for back-up for reliability purposes. The facility will be comprised of two combined-cycle units, each consisting of a combustion turbine generator (CTG), a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) with supplemental duct firing, and a steam turbine generator (STG). Auxiliary equipment will include a low nitrogen oxides (NOx) natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler, needed to keep the HRSGs warm during periods of turbine shutdown and to provide sealing steam during startups. The project will be equipped with state-of-the-art emissions control technology, including dry low NOx (DLN) burners and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to control emissions of NOx, and an oxidation catalyst to control carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. A continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) will be utilized to ensure and document facility compliance with applicable emissions standards. The CPV facility will also be limited to operating on the back-up fuel for the equivalent of 720 hours per year, per turbine. Water use will be minimized by the use of air cooled condensers (ACC). Process water supply will be treated wastewater provided from the City of Middletown Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Wastewater generated by the CPV facility will be returned to the City of Middletown STP. The facility will employ best management practices (BMPs) for stormwater management, which will include a system that reflects existing drainage patterns. There will be several storage tanks on-site, including a 965,000-gallon fuel oil storage tank, a 15,000-gallon aqueous ammonia storage tank and a 400,000-gallon demineralized water tank. A secondary safety containment area, designed to hold 110 percent of the entire volume of the tanks, will be provided around the fuel oil storage and ammonia storage tanks, consistent with New York State requirements. There will be two utility interconnections at the facility. The electricity generated from the facility will be transmitted via an underground interconnect to the existing NYPA 345-kV transmission system less than 1-mile northeast of the Project site. The new switchyard will be constructed on property adjacent to the NYPA transmission line. Natural gas for the facility will be transported to the facility via the Millennium pipeline south of the site. The approval of this natural gas lateral will be subject to approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The project is located in the northeast portion of the Town of Wawayanda that is bounded by Interstate 84 to the south, SR 17M on the east and SR 6 on the north and west. The site is undeveloped land used previously for agricultural purposes and zoned mixed commercial by the Town of Wawayanda. Air Permits: The Applicant filed individual applications seeking the issuance of a preconstruction permit pursuant to 6 N.Y. Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) §201-6.1(b) and Subpart 201-5. New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Staff concluded in July 2012 that the applications for this permit were complete within the meaning of 6 NYCRR §621.2(f) and tentatively determined to issue the permits. Consequently, NYS DEC Staff prepared a draft permit pursuant to 6 NYCRR §621.7(b)(7), which was publicly noticed in the July 11, 2012 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin. The comment period initiated by that notice ended on September 9, 2012. NYS DEC Staff determined that the conditions in the draft preconstruction permit would authorize the construction and operation of the proposed facility and assure conformance of the facility with all applicable State and federal air pollution control regulations including the requirements of 6 NYCRR Parts 201, 225, 227, 231, 242, 243, 244, 245 and 257, as well as all New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60. Information regarding the demonstration of the Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) or Best Available Control Technology (BACT) or both was included within the Draft and Final EIS and the initial draft air permit. CPV is renoticing its draft Air State Facility permit to construct. CPV is conducting the re-notice based on revisions to the permit which include: the addition of new conditions and the revision of existing conditions. The revisions to the existing conditions consist of the addition of enhanced monitoring and compliance requirements (record keeping and reporting). The newly added conditions consist of a 65 ton per year (tpy) VOC facility emission limit, a 186.8 tpy NOx facility limit, a 344 tpy CO facility limit, a 42 tpy sulfur dioxide (SO2) facility limit, a 95 tpy fine particulate matter (PM-2.5) facility limit, a 13 tpy sulfuric acid (H2SO4) facility limit, a 2,164,438 tpy carbon dioxide (CO2) facility limit, a 7,605 Btu per kilowatt hour efficiency standard on the combustion turbines, and the inclusion of emission reduction credit (ERC) conditions for NOx and VOC. As per the requirements of 6 NYCRR Subpart 231-5, the facility is subject to nonattainment new source review (NNSR) for NOx and VOC. Based on the applicability of NNSR, the facility has purchased 216 tpy of NOx ERCs and 75 tpy of VOC ERCs to comply with the rule. The sources of these ERCs are as follows: NOx - American Video Glass LLC (Sony Electronics, Inc.) PA 216 tpy VOC - Arbill Industries, Inc PA 17 tpy and S. Walter Packaging Corp. PA 58 tpy The Department is accepting comments on the proposed modifications to the air permit and the proposed ERCs. The facility is also subject to permitting under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act for impacts to wetlands under federal jurisdiction. The water quality certificate for these activities was also the subject of the above referenced public notice on July 9, 2012. There are no proposed modifications to the water quality certificate. Therefore, the comments should be limited to the proposed air permit modifications and ERCs. The draft air permit containing the proposed modifications can be accessed by visiting the NYSDEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/83449.html
