Transboundary notification: Sithe Energies Canadian Development Brampton

(1) Name and address of proponent:
Sithe Energies Canadian Development Ltd, 199 Bay St, Suite 5300, Toronto, ON, M5L1B9

(2) Latitude and longitude of proposed facility:
43o 44' 38" N,   79o 40' 51" W

(3) Distance to the Canada/U.S. border:
52 km

(4) Brief description of the proposed project (major products, process, capacity, etc):
Sithe is proposing to build, own and operate an 800MW natural gas fuelled, combined cycle power generating station and associated infrastructure called Goreway Station on Goreway Road in Brampton. The station will feature low NOx burners and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to further reduce NOx emissions.

(5) For combustion processes, list capacity (tonnes/year), fuel type and grade:
Assuming GE 3x1 configuration and based on 8,400 hours of operation with full auxiliary duct fired per year and average annual temperature of 7 degrees Celsius. Capacity: 1.0 x 10^6 tonnes/year Fuel Type: natural gas Fuel Grade: N/A

(6) Contact for technical and design information:
Duane Cramer, VP development,
Phone Number:  (416) 869-7053  
Fax Number:      (416) 947-0866

(7) Estimated annual quantities of the following pollutants released to the atmosphere (tonnes per year):

SO2 :          56
PM :           233
NOx :          304
VOC :          90
CO :           1055

Assuming GE 3x1 configuration and based on 8,400 hours per year of operation with full auxiliary duct firing and average annual temperature of 7 degrees Celsius.

(8) List hazardous air pollutants with emissions estimates (tonnes/year) for any hazardous pollutants with expected annual emission rates of greater than 1 tonne per year:
HAPS emissions are calculated from US. EPA AP-42 emission factors for natural gas fired combustion turbines at high loads (>80%), with the exception of formaldehyde which is based on limited manufacturer’s data. All values were determined based on 8,400 hours per year of operation with full auxiliary duct firing and an average annual temperature of 7 degrees Celsius for a GE 3x1 configuration. Formaldehyde - 3.1 tonnes/year Toluene - 3.1 tonnes/year Xylene - 1.5 tonnes/year
