Project Description

The Malburg Generating Station (MGS) is located in the City of Vernon, in Los Angeles County.

MGS is a 134-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired, combined-cycle facility consisting of two ALSTOM GTX100 frame-type natural gas combustion turbine-generators (CTGs) with dry low-NOx combustors for oxides of nitrogen control. The CTGs are each equipped with evaporative inlet air coolers/filters to enhance turbine performance in hot weather.

On June 12, 2019, the California Energy Commission approved a Post-Certification Amendment (TN 228800) for the installation and operation of Siemens SGT-800 A-Plus upgrade for both combustion turbines, which required modifications to existing conditions of certification including modifications to the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Permits to Construct. The first phase of the turbine upgrade installation, approved by staff as maintenance on March 5, 2018 (TN 222876), was completed in the spring of 2018 during a major maintenance outage. The approval also included modification of a restriction on the readiness testing of the emergency fire pump.

Power Plant Certification and Exemption Processes

As required by the Warren-Alquist Act, the Energy Commission monitors Commission-certified energy projects throughout construction, operation, and closure to ensure compliance with the conditions of certification imposed by the Commission’s Final Decision for approving the projects.
