ON DRAFT AIR PERMIT
REGULATING THE EMISSIONS OF AIR POLLUTANTS
(Docket No. 11-CA-PA-08)
Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), Chapter 342B-13 and Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Chapter 11-60.1, the Department of Health, State of Hawaii (DOH), is requesting public comments on the following DRAFT PERMIT presently under review for:
Covered Source Permit (CSP) No. 0548-01-C
Application for Modification No. 0548-05
Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc.
Campbell Industrial Park Generating Station
Located at: 91-196 Hanua Street, Kapolei, Oahu
UTM – 592,526 Meters East and 2,356,666 Meters North, Zone 4 (Old Hawaiian)
The DRAFT PERMIT is described as follows:
Issuance of the modification to CSP No. 0548-01-C under application No. 0548-05 will grant conditional approval to add an alternate operating scenario for unplanned maintenance and testing of combustion turbine generator CIP1. The permit will also be updated to incorporate the following revisions: (1) removing combustion turbine generator CIP2 from the permit because this unit was not installed, (2) removing the total combined combustion turbine generator firing rate limit of 24.8 MMBtu/yr, (3) adding biodiesel as an approved fuel for operating CIP1, (4) incorporating minimum water-to-fuel mass ratios for firing CIP1 on biodiesel, and (5) incorporating maximum time limit for operating equipment under alternate operating scenarios. Unit CIP1 is subject to 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60 – Subpart KKKK, Standards of Performance for Stationary Combustion Turbines. Black start diesel engine generators BSG1 and BSG2 are subject to 40 CFR Part 60 – Subpart IIII, Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines and 40 CFR Part 63 – Subpart ZZZZ, National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines. The permit has existing conditions that subject storage tanks to 40 CFR Part 60 – Subpart Kb, Standards of Performance for Volatile Organic Liquid Storage Vessels (Including Petroleum Liquid Storage Vessels) for Which Construction, Reconstruction, or Modification Commenced after July 23, 1984 if storing fuels with high vapor pressure. The proposed revisions do not increase emissions. Maximum potential combustion turbine generator emissions will be half of those calculated initially for the facility because CIP2 was not installed. This results in a considerable decrease in emissions.
