Power Siting
Co-Generation Facility. LMG has acted as the Power Siting Project Manager and Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) application consultant for the FDS Co-Generation Facility. FDS is a 135 MegaWatt co-generation power plant that uses steam produced by waste heat from an adjacent non-recovery coke plant to generate electricity.  The co-generation facility occupies 5 acres of land within the 51 acre coke plant site. As Project Manager, we have overseen the specification of facility design features that include a single steam turbine building, a maintenance and water treatment building, exterior tankage, cooling towers, a 138kV substation, and general roadway access to the major equipment. LMG also conducted a sensitivity analysis of waste heat and steam production models for determination of facility electrical production. This information was then incorporated into project financial modeling and preparation of a pre-pay electricity agreement.

As the OPSB siting application consultant, LMG prepared the application package to obtain the Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need. During preparation of the application, we evaluated proposed construction sites for potential environmental resource, historical, and cultural impacts. LMG also prepared responses to OPSB staff application questions and requests for additional information, prepared and submitted required service and public notice filings to OPSB, facilitated agency site inspections, and represented FDS at public hearings and at meetings with OPSB staff and Ohio elected officials.
