Construction of N.J. Woodbridge natgas power plant to start soon
Niantic residents say theyre upset and wish theyd had time to make other sleeping arrangements. I think they should have just gave a heads up on when they were going to do this so we had a choice to either go to a hotel or find a place to sleep, because nobody in the neighborhoods getting sleep anymore, said Ron Staskeluna, who lives nearby on Terrace Avenue. Cole said the work will make its way east along the shoreline and will wrap up in November. Theyre replacing millions of ties one section at a time. This stage of the project will finish up Tuesday night, but crews will head back to Niantic in October to do the same thing on a second track. East Lyme First Selectman Paul Formica said he contacted Amtrak asking why the railroad did not follow protocal and let him know before beginning construction. Cole said Amtrak is accepting responsibility for its slipup and that the railroads engineering department is aware of the need to notify elected officials before beginning construction.
The 700-megawatt project, which will generate enough power for about 700,000 New Jersey homes, could enter service as soon as the first quarter of 2016, the companies said in a statement. Privately held power company Competitive Power Ventures, investment firm ArcLight Capital Partners and Japanese trading firm Toyota Tsusho Corp own the plant, which will be operated by an affiliate of ArcLight. The plant is expected to sell capacity through a 15-year contract, called a Standard Offer Capacity Agreement (SOCA), with New Jersey utilities, and energy through a hedge, the companies said. General Electric Co’s GE Energy Financial Services through GE Capital Markets Inc served as the project’s primary lead arranger and bookrunner to anchor $561 million in senior secured credit facilities, the companies said. GE Energy Financial Services and nine banks are providing the credit facilities.
