ENB Region 1 Completed Applications 12/18/2013

Nassau County

Applicant:

Village of Rockville Centre
PO Box 950
Rockville Centre, NY 11571 -0950

Facility:

Rockville Centre Power Plant
110 Maple Ave
Rockville Ctr, NY 11571

Application ID:

1-2820-00753/00008

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Hempstead, Nassau County

Project Description:

The Department is prepared to issue the Title V renewal for the Rockville Centre Power Plant. The Power Plant is a small municipal not-for-profit electric generating facility for residents, businesses, health care facilities and municipal government entities within the village. The Power Plant consists of eight diesel engine-generators with differing capacities and fuel capabilities, totaling 34 MW. The engines are designated as units #7, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13, and #14. Units #7, #8 and #12 are now designated as emergency generators. Units #9, #10, #11 and #14 must operate in dual fuel mode (except during periods of start-up and shut down), while unit #13 operates on distillate fuel only. No new construction or increase in air emissions are proposed in this Title V permit renewal.

The Title V permit renewal will incorporate a Department approved alternative NOx RACT Compliance Plan. The facility will be required to test engines #9, #10, #11 and #13 once during the term of the permit to determine the NOx emission rate that will be used in calculating their NOx system average. Engine #14 will be required to maintain a CEM to monitor its NOx emission rate. The calculated system average must be equal to or less than 6.2 grams per BHp-Hr. The facility must maintain records of the monitoring data and the system averaging calculations on site for a minimum of five years.

A modeling analysis was performed to verify that there was no contravening of the NAAQS for PM2.5, PM10, and NO2 in accordance with the permitted operating scenarios.
In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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.
