Bowie Power Station, LLC, retained WREG to prepare a combined construction/operating air permit application for a 1,000-megawatt natural gas-fired combustion turbine project to be located in southeast Arizona.
The permit application included a description of applicable requirements and compliance methods, Best Available Control Technology (BACT) analyses, and a detailed air quality impact analysis. CALPUFF, VISCREEN, and PLUVUE were used to estimate visibility impacts in nearby Class II areas, as well as visibility effects in four Class I areas.
Acid rain provision documentation was also prepared. The project was recently repermitted as a 500-megawatt facility with updated BACT and dispersion modeling analyses.
