Designed to operate primarily during times of peak power usage, this Con
Edison Development natural gas plant operates adjacent to and in correlation
with an already operational co-generation electric power plant. Built
and operated by Ocean Peaking Power L.P., an affiliate of Con Ed, this
facility burns natural gas to produce electricity, without using any water
in the process.
Initially constructed with an output capacity of 330 megawatts, Con Edison
Ocean Peaking Power includes two gas turbine generators with options for
a third unit. Its original production allows for enough electricity to
power an additional 330,000 homes during the summer, when Ocean County’s
population surges due to area tourists.
Binsky & Snyder provided the complete mechanical fabrication and installation
of the power plant’s natural gas pipes and other pipefitting needs.
Our project team’s responsibilities were finished on-time to ensure
start-up before the anticipated peak power usage the following summer.
