T/G supplier: Siemens, Toshiba
EPC: HBZ
Quick facts: This site previously housed a pair of 400-MW conventional oil/gas units built in the mid-1960s in part to supply power for the new Kennedy Space Center. The CCGT project was first approved by the Florida PSC in in Sep 2008 and final approval was received in Oct 2009, but actual work was delayed for a few moinths by prevailing economic and market conditions. Groundbreaking was in Apr 2011 and the plant was commisisoned in Apr 2013. Cape Canaveral is on the Intracoastal Waterway in Brevard Co and FPL spent about $15mn providing a unique system of pumps and heaters to safely over-winter the local manatee population after the thermal plant cooling water discharge was halted for the 3yr construction period.

Quick facts: In Oct 2005, the City of Tallahassee decided to accelerate the conversion of Unit-2 at A B Hopkins Generating Station from a 230-MW gas- and oil-fired steam-electric plant based on analyses conducted by Sargent & Lundy. A two-phase project was initiated, first to convert to a 1+1 CCGT block and then to add a second GT at a later date. Construction permits were received in Nov 2006 and the 1+1 block began operating in mid-2008 as planned without any lost-time accidents and about 8% under the $156mn budget. The GT has DLN 2.6 burners and the fired HRSG has an SCR. Emerson supplied its Ovation DCS. Arvah B Hopkins served as the Tallahassee City Manager from 1952 until 1974.
