California Boiler Case Studies
Bayonne Cogeneration

Bayonne, New Jersey

This was one of the first CCGT cogeneration plants in the Northeast. The original developer was Cogen Technologies. In September 2004, Newmarket Power Co, a jointly owned subsidiary of MMC Energy and Morris Energy Group, acquired the facility. The plant is grid-connected at 138kV. Bayonne supplies all required steam for IMTT’s NJ based operation.
