Applicant:

Indeck-Oswego Limited Partnership

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

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

Project is Located:

Oswego, Oswego County

Project Description:

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and made a tentative decision to issue to Indeck-Oswego Limited Partnership a renewal of its Title V permit and also an Acid Rain Program permit pursuant to Title IV of the federal Clean Air Act.

Indeck-Oswego operates a General Electric Frame 6 gas turbine-generator (of about 44 MW capacity). Duct burners add supplemental heat to a heat recovery steam generator, which supplies steam to a condensing steam turbine (about 17 MW). NOx emissions are controlled with steam injection. NOx and CO emissions are measured using continuous emission monitors.

The gas turbine/heat recovery steam generator combination is subject to 6 NYCRR 227-2, which requires the installation of reasonable available control technology (RACT). This permit is approving an alternative NOx RACT limit for the combustion turbine/HRSG. Emissions of NOx will be limited to 32 ppm when firing gas and 54 ppm when firing oil, with compliance determined over a 24 hour period. The prior limits were 42 ppm and 65 ppm when firing gas and oil, respectively. Additionally, in the event that emissions equal or exceed 117 tons over any 12 consecutive month period, the facility will be subject to an emission limit of 9 ppm while firing natural gas, to begin no later than 18 months after first emitting 117 tons. Indeck-Oswego will be required to also provide to the DEC justification for a lower NOx limit when firing on oil.

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.

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. 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. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. 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.
