Derrygreenagh CCGT & OCGT Power Station
AWN Consulting prepared the Air Quality & Climate section of the EIS for the planning application for the proposed Derrygreenagh power station.
The Bord na Mona development consists of two units: a reserve/peaking Open Cycle Gas Turbine unit of 170 MW, and a flexible Combined Cycle Gas Turbine unit of 430 MW.
A six-month baseline assessment for a range of air quality pollutants including NO2, SO2, PM10, and benzene was undertaken in the facility of the site.
Air dispersion modelling was undertaken using the USEPA approved AERMOD air dispersion model and was used to determine appropriate stack heights for both turbines.
