Permit(s) Applied for:

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

Project is Located:

Scriba, Oswego County

Project Description:

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and made a tentative decision to issue to Sithe/Independence Power Partners LP a renewal of its Title V and Title IV permits for the Independence Station. The facility consists of four stationary gas turbines (GE MS 7001FA). Block 1 consists of 2 gas turbines. The MW output is a function of ambient temperature and varies from 130 MW in the summer to 170 MW in the winter. Each gas turbine is equipped with a heat recovery steam generator; the two GT/HRSGs supply a single steam turbine (209 MW). Block 2 is of identical configuration to Block 1, consisting of turbines 3 and 4, each with a steam generator, and one steam turbine. The turbines are equipped with dry low NOx combustors and SCR with ammonia injection.

Heat is circulated to Novelis Corporation in the form of hot water.

Stack NOx, O2 and CO emissions are monitored continuously with CEMs.

There are two aux boilers that exhaust through one stack. That boiler stack is equipped with a NOx and O2 monitor. Steam coils in the mud drums of the boilers allow them to be kept warm.

The facility is major for PM10/2.5, NOx and CO.

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.
