Marina Energy pursues interconnect at PJM for New Jersey gas-fired project

Marina Energy LLC has proposed a 7.5 MW MFO (7.5 MWC) generating facility to be located in Atlantic City, New Jersey, said a PJM Interconnection study on the project dated February 2016.

This project, under PJM queue #AB1-030, will consist of a single simple cycle combustion turbine constituting a 7.5 MW injection into the Atlantic City Electric system at the Marigen 12.9 kV Substation. PJM evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2019. The planned in-service date, as stated during the kick-off call, is Dec. 1, 2016.

The intent of this Combined Feasibility/System Impact Study is to determine a plan, with approximate cost and construction time estimates, to connect the subject generation interconnection project to the PJM network at a location specified by Marina Energy. The study is a mid-point in a process leading to the signing of an Interconnection Service Agreement.
