Brandywine is a 230 MW natural gas-fired power project
Brandywine Power Facility is a 2x1 Combined Cycle Generating Facility located in Brandywine, Maryland.
Brandywine utilizes two (2) GE Frame 7EA DLN-1 combustion turbines, one (1) GE condensing steam turbine and two (2) Nooter Eriksen HRSG’s for the generation of electrical power.
The Facility sells capacity, energy and ancillary services into the PEPCO Zone of the PJM ISO.
|MW:||230 / 260 (Summer / Winter)|
|Fuel:||Natural Gas (Primary) Distillate Fuel Oil (Back-up)|
|Commercial Operation:||October, 1996 - Present|
The facility utilizes natural gas, which is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels, as its primary fuel source.
The gas turbines utilize the GE DLN-1 (Dry Low NOx) combustion systems which produce 9.0 ppm or less of NOx emissions when burning natural gas and 54 ppm or less of NOx when burning ultra-low sulfur fuel oil with water injection.
Brandywine Power employees participate in a Site Safety Committee to promote workplace safety and health best practices at the facility. The site has not had any lost time incidences since being commissioned in October of 1996.
