Dynegy works on uprate of Kendall plant at PJM

The Dynegy Kendall Energy LLC unit of Dynegy (NYSE: DYN) is working at PJM Interconnection through the queue process on interconnection agreements for an 80-MW uprate at its power plant in Illinois.

“Queue Y3-088/089/090/091 is an Dynegy Kendall Energy, LLC request for a combined 80 MW (Net Summer Capacity and Energy) increase to Kendall generating units #1, #2, #3, and #4,” said a February 2015 study on the project from PJM.

The end results for these units after this uprate will be:

  • Unit 1 Maximum Facility Output 304.2 MW and Capacity Injection Rights 304.2 MW;
  • Unit 2 Maximum Facility Output 304.2 MW and Capacity Injection Rights 304.2 MW
  • Unit 3 Maximum Facility Output 306.2 MW and Capacity Injection Rights 306.2 MW;
  • Unit 4 Maximum Facility Output 304.2 MW and Capacity Injection Rights 304.2 MW.

Projects Y3-088/090 were available in the second quarter of 2014 and projects Y3-089/091 will be in service in the second quarter of 2016.

The Dynegy website shows Kendall as a 1,200-MW, gas-fired combined-cycle facility that went into commercial operation in 2002.
