Notes
Hunlock Power Station is a repower project converting from coal-fired to natural gas combined cycle utilizing (2) 45 MW GE-LM6000 turbines. The addition of a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) allows for using the existing coal-fired turbine without coal. Instead the turbine captures heat from the new GE-LM6000 units to operator at 35MW. The total production of this plant increased significantly without increasing carbon footprint or greenhouse gas emissions. The plant was completed for operation in the summer of 2011 with a contracted capacity of 130 MW.
