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.
