Eagle Point works through PJM on uprated New Jersey plant

Eagle Point Power Generation LLC has proposed installing a new 50-MW steam turbine generator at its Eagle Point facility located in Gloucester County, New Jersey.

“This will change the existing 2X1 combined cycle configuration to a 2×2 configuration, increasing the total installed capability at the facility to 265 MW,” said a facilities study on the project from PJM Interconnection dated December 2014. “The project scheduled in-service date is June 1, 2016.

This facility is already interconnected with the Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) transmission system at the Eagle Point 230-kV substation. This report is a mid-point in the PJM review process for this facility.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, in the meantime, is taking comment until Jan. 21 on a draft air permit revision that also covers this project. The plant now consists of two combustion turbines with duct burners. This proposed modification would allow installation of a second steam generator and a mechanical-draft cooling tower.
