This consisted of decommissioning combustion turbines 4 and 5 by permanent removal of the ignition coils of each, and by the addition of an emission cap on Boiler 3. These actions were the subject of a previous ENB notice dated 05/03/06. The Department intends to certify 27.2 tons of NOx Emission Reduction Credits as requested by the applicant.
