Humboldt Bay Case Study




Humboldt Bay Station
163 MW

The plant is located in Humboldt County near Eureka in northern California. Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) selected Wärtsilä's technology in order to replace two 50-year-old gas turbine units on the same site. Compared to the old turbine power plant, the new facility is 33% more efficient with 85% fewer ozone-forming compounds, and a 34% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions production. The plant was designed to meet California's stringent air permitting requirements, and the regulations of California Energy Commission.
