NRG Energy Center in Delaware celebrates conversion to natural gas

Delaware state officials and members of the state’s congressional delegation will be gathering at the NRG Energy Center Dover to celebrate the facility’s conversion to a combined-cycle natural gas-fired facility, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The facility, which is owned and operated through NRG Thermal LLC, was built in 1984 and commissioned in 1985. NRG retired the facility’s existing coal-fueled steam boiler and installed a natural gas low nitrogen oxide-fired boiler and converted one of two existing combustion turbines to a combined cycle operation.

The conversion took about a year to complete, according to the Associated  Press report.
