Essex GT
Location: NJ
Operator: PSEG Fossil LLC
Configuration: 12 X 42-MW FT4 gas turbines, 1 X 94-MW 7001EA gas turbine

T/G supplier: P&W, GE
EPC: PSEG, GE, SM Electric
Quick facts: The first plant on this site located on the Passaic River in Newark was completed in just over 8mos in 1915 and supplied electricity to hundreds of defense-related manufacturers in northern New Jersey. There were major renovations in the late 1930s and again in the early 1960s. A generator installed at the Essex site in 1963 was the first combustion turbine unit in the PSEG system – and at the time was the largest single-unit gas turbine generator in the United States. It was shipped on eight railroad cars from Schenectady, NY. All the steam-electric sets have been removed from service and Essex is now a peaking plant only.

Linden CC
Location: NJ
Operator: PSEG Fossil LLC
Configuration: Two 620-MW, 2+1 CCGT blocks with 7001FA gas turbines
Operation: 2006
Fuel: natural gas, kerosene
HRSG supplier: FW
T/G supplier: GE
EPC: Duke/Fluor Daniel, PSEG
Quick facts: The constrained site required the EPC team to alter the placement of the prime movers and design and build unusual piping geometry. The plant is grid-connected at two different voltages, 138kV and 230kV. In Unit-1, one gas turbine is on the 138-kV system and the other is on the 230-kV system. The unit was split that way to use the injection rights of the old Linden steam-electric plant. Unit-2 is connected only to the 230-kV grid. The PJM power pool uses different pricing mechanisms to pay Linden for the two capacity injections into its grid. Linden was named one of Power magazine's Top Plants of 2006.
