CPV Shore files with FERC on 700-MW gas project in New Jersey

CPV Shore LLC filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on March 4 a notice of self-certification of Exempt Wholesale Generator (EWG) status related to a nominal 700-MW combined cycle generating facility it plans to build in Middlesex County, N.J.

CPV Shore has a principal place of business in Silver Spring, Md. CPV Shore is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Competitive Power Ventures Inc. (CPV). CPV Shore has been created to own and operate a 700 MW nominal combined cycle electric power generating facility.

“The Facility will consist of two General Electric (GE) 207 FA.05 combustion turbine generators that will utilize pipeline natural gas,” said the March 4 filing. “Heat recovery steam generators downstream of the combustion turbines will recover heat from the exhaust gases to generate steam. The heat recovery steam generators will be equipped with natural gas-fired duct burners for supplementary firing and will share a single steam turbine generator. The Facility, which is expected to become operational by June, 2015 will be interconnected with the Pennsylvania-Jersey-Maryland (‘PJM’) grid via a dedicated interconnection line that will tie-into an existing substation in the Borough of Sayreville, Middlesex County, New Jersey.”

The parent company, CPV. currently develops, constructs, manages, owns and operates electric-generating facilities in wholesale energy markets. CPV’s power development portfolio includes eight natural-gas fired projects totaling approximately 5,500 MW of new generation in North America.
