Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to issue an Air State Facility Permit to AES Westover for its facility located in Johnson City, NY.  

AES Westover is an electric generating system consisting of two steam turbines and three coalfired boilers.  Through an agreement with the DEC two of the boilers (Boilers 11 and 12) will operate on restricted hours.  In order to insure the availability of steam when all three boilers are shut down, the facility is adding a new package boiler.  The package boiler will fire natural gas and has a maximum heat input capacity of 32.7 mmBtu/hr.  

The boiler will be subject to New York State?s Nitrogen Oxide Reasonably Available Control Technology (NOx RACT) rule and the federal New Source Performance Standard found at 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart Dc and the federal National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants For Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters, 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart DDDDD.
