Virginia Department of Environmental Quality records show that on July 13 of this year, the CPV Smyth Generation Co. LLC affiliate of Competitive Power Ventures withdrew an air permit application filed in January 2014 for a 700-MW, gas-fired project in Smyth County, Va.
DEQ deemed the application inactive and withdrawn as of July 13, and sent a letter that day to Competitive Power Ventures confirming it. The July 13 letter said a new permit application would be needed if the company wanted to further pursue the project.
CPV Smyth had proposed construction and operation of a 700-MW, natural gas-fired, combined-cycle facility on a 108-acre site near Interstate 81 in Atkins in Smyth County. The plant was to be air cooled and utilize two gas combustion turbine generators, two heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine generator.
PJM Interconnection records show that the queue request (#Y2-058) for this project has been withdrawn.
