New Haven Peaking Project
PSEG Power Connecticut built an electric generating peaking facility at its New Haven Harbor station, located at 1 Waterfront Street in New Haven, Connecticut. The new peaking units began commercial operation on Jun 1, 2012. The project represents a $160 million investment in New Haven and provides the City with more than $3 million annually in additional tax revenue.
The project added three highly efficient General Electric LM-6000 combustion turbines at the site of the existing New Haven Harbor facility. These turbines use state-of-the-art technology to provide residents of Southwest Connecticut with power during periods of peak demand for electricity.
The new turbines are dual-fueled and use either natural gas or ultra low sulfur fuel oil. These are the cleanest fuels available.
The project included state-of-the art emissions controls that meet the latest environmental standards. A Selective Catalytic Reduction system and water injection were installed to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 90 percent or more. A combustion catalyst has reduced carbon monoxide emissions by 80 to 85 percent.
Peaking units can rapidly produce electricity and are most often used during periods of high demand – for example, during sweltering afternoons when air conditioners are in constant use. The GE LM-6000 turbines at New Haven can reach full output within 10 minutes of being called into service.
As peaking units, these turbines operate only during periods of peak power demand. The facility is helping to improve the reliability of the transmission system by quickly providing power when required by the NE-ISO.
PSEG Power Connecticut is committed to providing the state with reliable and environmentally responsible energy.
The PSEG Keys Energy Center project will be constructed on a 180+ acre parcel of land previously used for a sand and gravel mining operation. The site is located north of North Keys Road approximately 1.25 miles east of Brandywine, Maryland.
