The New York ISO issued a brief Aug. 29 notice about a recent request by J-POWER USA Generation LP for the deactivation in August 2017 of two units at the Shoreham power plant.
The units subject to deactivation are:
- Shoreham GT 3, Nameplate Capacity 51 MW
- Shoreham GT 4, Nameplate Capacity 51 MW
The deactivation notice was determined to be complete by the NYISO on Aug. 26. J-Power plans to retire the units, not mothball them. The notice said: “Generators have proposed to be Retired greater than 365 days after the Generator Deactivation Assessment Start Date and states that it intends to retire on August 13, 2017.”
The J-Power website says about this two-unit plant: “The Shoreham Facility is a 90.0 MW electric generating peaking facility, consisting of JET-A fuel-fired, simple cycle General Electric LM6000 PC SPRINT, located in Long Island, New York.”
