National Public Energy principals co-owned and
developed the Greenport Electric Generating Facility through Global
Common Greenport, LLC a special purpose entity established for the
purpose of developing and permitting a 52MW oil-fired simple-cycle
combustion turbine-generating plant.
We were responsible for negotiation of all major
project documents in sequence with a four-month, fast-track siting and
permitting process. We performed the economic feasibility analysis;
managed the project scope development and construction bidding
process; and, developed the pricing and negotiating strategies for all
project documents. We were also responsible for managing the
financing process, resulting in the successful sale of the project in
March 2003 at commencement of construction.
The Project was constructed by a joint-venture of Northeast Generation
Services (a wholly owned subsidiary of Northeast Utilities) and
Hawkeye Construction LLC on a fast-track schedule with commencement of
construction in March 2003 and a successful Commercial Operation Date
of July 2003.
The Project sells 100% of its capacity, energy
and ancillary services to the Long Island Power Authority, pursuant to
a 15-year Power Purchase (Tolling) Agreement.
Project operations are conducted on a 2 acre
site within the property limits of a municipal wastewater treatment
center, owned and operated by the Village of Greenport, New York. The
Project holds a 30-year site lease with the Village of Greenport.
Major plant components include a Pratt & Whitney SwiftPac 50 aero-derivative combustion turbine-generator; a Selective
Catalytic Reduction System for control of NOx and CO; a Distributed
Control System; two fuel (kerosene) tanks, tanks for demineralized
water and aqueous ammonia; and, various switchgear and transformers.
