Marsh Landing Generation Station

Antioch, CA

GenOn's Marsh Landing Generating Station (MLGS) consists of four power 190 megawatt Siemens simple cycle gas turbine units. All of these units have “quick start” capability, so they can power up and be ready to produce electricity within a short period of time — another important feature in energy efficiency and environmental leadership. The MLGS will be sited adjacent to the existing Contra Costa Power Plant in unincorporated Contra Costa County, California, near the city of Antioch. This type of brownfield development makes use of existing infrastructure such as natural gas lines and electric transmission lines, enabling the state to preserve greenfield sites for other non-utility development. In addition to utilizing Best Available Control Technology — an EPA standard for emissions control — the project will incorporate LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), an international standard for “green” construction. read more »

One of the more difficult aspects of this project was the close proximity of the existing process tower on one side and circa 1915 original creamery buildings on the other side. One entire bearing line of the old building was removed along with portions of its roof to make room for the new tower. The process building is over 120-feet in height making it the equivalent of a 10-story commercial structure but far more complicated due to the enormous equipment loads suspended within it.   read more »
