25 Pa. Code § 129.202. Stationary combustion turbines.

§ 129.202. Stationary combustion turbines.

 (a)  By May 1, 2005, and each year thereafter, the owner or operator of a stationary combustion turbine with a nameplate rated capacity of greater than 100 million Btu/hour located in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery or Philadelphia County shall comply with this section and §  129.204 (relating to emission accountability). This section does not apply to naval marine stationary combustion turbines operated by the United States Navy for the purposes of testing and operational training.

 (b)  By October 31, 2005, and each year thereafter, the owner or operator of the stationary combustion turbine shall calculate the difference between the actual emissions from the unit for the period from May 1 through September 30 and the allowable emissions for that period.

 (c)  The owner or operator shall calculate allowable emissions by multiplying the unit’s cumulative heat input for the period by the applicable emission rate set forth in paragraph (1) or (2).

   (1)  The emission rate for a stationary combustion turbine with a nameplate rated capacity of greater than 100 million Btu/hour but less than or equal to 250 million Btu/hour heat input shall be as follows:

     (i)   A combined cycle or regenerative cycle stationary combustion turbine:

       (A)   When firing natural gas or a noncommercial gaseous fuel, 0.17 lbs NOx/MMBtu or 1.3 lbs NOx/MWH.

       (B)   When firing oil, 0.26 lbs NOx/MMBtu or 2.0 lbs NOx/MWH.

     (ii)   A simple cycle stationary combustion turbine:

       (A)   When firing natural gas or a noncommercial gaseous fuel, 0.20 lbs NOx/MMBtu or 2.2 lbs NOx/MWH.

       (B)   When firing oil, 0.30 lbs NOx/MMBtu or 3.0 lbs NOx/MWH.

   (2)  The emission rate for a stationary combustion turbine with a nameplate rated capacity of greater than 250 million Btu/hour heat input that is not subject to §  145.8(c) or (d) (relating to transition to CAIR NOx trading programs) is 0.17 lbs NOx per million Btu heat input.
