Oncor Electric Delivery Co. LLC filed on March 3 at the Texas Public Utility Commission an Interconnection Agreement for a gas-fired power project in Angelina County, Texas, of Pinecrest Energy Center LLC.
The deal covers the interconnection to the Oncor system of two Siemens 225-MW combustion turbines (model number SGT6-5000Fee) and one Siemens 335 MW steam turbine (model number SST-5000). The scheduled commercial operation date for this project is June 1, 2017. The point of interconnection is at Oncor’s Lufkin Switching Station.
A project contact listed in the agreement is: Pinecrest Energy Center LLC, John Upchurch, 281-636-2017, email@example.com.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 6 office in August 2014 issued a final air permit to Pinecrest Energy Center LLC for this combined cycle plant. The turbines, depending on the final developer choice, would be the General Electric 7FA.05, the Siemens SGT6-5000F(4) or the Siemens SGT6-5000F(5) model, EPA said at the time.
The Coronado Power Ventures website shows that this 730-MW project is due for completion in the third quarter of 2017. The website shows the company’s other project as the 700-MW La Paloma Energy Center gas-fired facility in Texas, which is also due for completion in the third quarter of 2017.
