 Greenport, New York


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.
