Satsop Combustion Turbine Project
2001 Requests for Amendment


Technical Amendment No. 297:
In February 2001, the Council authorized technical amendment No. 297 to the Site Certification Agreement, allowing the addition of Duke Energy Grays Harbor, LLC, as a Site Certification Agreement co-permittee.

Technical Amendment No. 298:
In April 2001, the Council authorized technical amendment No. 298 to the Site Certification Agreement, allowing:

  • the replacement of the originally permitted Westinghouse turbines with General Electric turbines;

  • a modification of  the facility configuration  from a dual "one-on-one" configuration (two separate but identical combustion turbine generator - steam turbine generator trains), to a single "two on one" configuration (two combustion turbine generators - one steam turbine generator facility);

  • an increase of  the nominal output of the facility from 490 MW to 530 MW;

  • an increase of the a maximum output of approximately 650 MW by utilizing duct firing;

  • and removal of the capability to use diesel oil as a backup fuel.

Request for Amendment and Expedited Permitting:
Duke Energy notified EFSEC on October 23, 2001 that the current licensed project, consisting of two combustion turbine generators on a "two on one" configuration with a  single steam turbine generator,  and a 48 mile natural gas pipeline to supply fuel to the site, is to be considered "Phase I" pending the submittal of a request to amend the SCA to allow for the construction of another 650 MW project, consisting of two combustion turbine generators on a "two on one" configuration with a  single steam turbine generator, called "Phase II".  On November 19, 2001, a request for an amendment to allow for the construction of Phase II, and for expedited processing pursuant RCW 80.50.075 was received by the Council. On September 23, 2002, Duke Energy has indefinitely deferred construction of the Satsop CT project and has requested that the Council also postpone processing of the Phase II amendment request indefinitely.
