Tennessee agency seeks comment on air permit for new power plant

Pentacles Electric LLLP out of Coral Gables, Florida, is seeking an air contaminant permit for construction of an Electric Generating Facility located at Brewstertown Road in Robbins in Morgan County, Tenn.

“This proposed operation would consist of six (6) natural gas-fired reciprocation engines with 9.77 MW generators and two (2) natural gas-fired turbines with 58.9 MW generators,” said a brief notice issued April 2 by the Tennessee Division of Air Pollution Control. “Each unit would be equipped with add-on controls to reduce NOx, CO and VOC emissions.”

This permitting is out for public comment for 30 days from April 2.

The website of Pentacles Energy LLLP shows the same physical address as in the Tennessee permitting notice and that Pentacles Electric is a Pentacles Energy affiliate. Pentacles Energy operates secondary recovery fields for the purpose of oil and gas production.
