Cattaraugus County

Applicant:

Indeck-Olean Limited Partnership
600 N Buffalo Grove Rd Ste 300
Buffalo Grove, IL 60089 -2432

Facility:

Indeck Olean Energy Center
140 Moore Ave
Olean, NY 14760

Application ID:

9-0412-00042/00011

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Olean, Cattaraugus County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal of the Title V Air Permit and the Title IV Acid Rain Phase 2 Permit for the Indeck Olean Energy Center (Indeck). Indeck is a combined cycle co-generation plant that produces electricity and steam. The facility consists of one Emission Unit (EU), EU O-00001, which includes a General Electric Frame 6 combustion gas turbine, a duct burner, and a selective catalytic reducer. A Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) is used to measure and record emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Carbon Monoxide (CO), oxygen, ammonia and opacity at the stack. A Continuous Opacity Monitor is used to measure opacity from the stack. Permit conditions require a once per permit term ammonia stack test for compliance and to test the accuracy of the ammonia monitoring system. The permit also contains conditions to limit the pounds of NOx and CO emitted during each 180-minute startup or shutdown period. Indeck conducted a NOx Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) analysis in December 2011. The result showed that the current control equipment, steam injection, and selective catalytic reduction device, are RACT. The draft permit has also been updated to remove conditions related to regulations no longer in effect and to be consistent with the latest power producer requirements for control, monitoring and trading emissions of sulfur dioxide, NOx, and greenhouse gases.

The facility is subject to the following regulations: 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V), 40 CFR 72 (Title IV Acid Rain), 40 CFR 97 (Cross-State Air Pollution Rule), 6 NYCRR Part 242 (Carbon Dioxide Budget Trading Program), 6 NYCRR 201-7 (capping), 40 CFR 60 Subpart GG (gas turbine) and 40 CFR 60 Subpart Dc (duct burner). A Title IV Acid Rain Permit has been drafted in accordance with 40 CFR 72 and is available for review.

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.
