Hess Power Plant in Newark NJ Obtains Environmental Approval
September 21 2012 - Hess has been issued an air pollution control operating permit from The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the proposed 655MW natural gas-fired power plant which will be owned by Hess.
The proposed Newark Energy Center will be located on a 23-acre brownfield site owned by Hess adjacent to its petroleum storage terminal in Newark, New Jersery.
What is the NEC? The proposed Newark Energy Center (NEC) is an environmentally advanced, 655-megawatt gas-fired electricity generating facility at an industrial site in Newark, New Jersey. Over the next several months, the NEC will undergo a rigorous and open regulatory process that will be completed before construction begins. In May 2012, the Newark Energy Center cleared PJM Interconnection’s base residual auction and will provide capacity to meet demand in the June 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016 delivery year.
