Document Description
The project would include the installation of up to four natural gas/biogas fired reciprocating engines (up to 12.5 MW total for three of the four operating at any one time. The proposed engines would meet or exceed Achieved in Practice emissions standards maintained by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD). The proposed engines would be housed in a new, 36,300 sf (330 feet x 110 feet) Cogeneration Building that would be constructed within the Project area near Zanker Road. The Cogeneration Building would be constructed as a high-bay concrete design, with a height similar to the existing Blower Generation Building. The proposed Cogeneration Building would also include four new stacks for air emissions. The stacks would be 24 inches in diameter and would reach to approximately 40 feet in height, which is the same height as the existing stack for the adjacent Blower Generation Building.
