Ecology is notifying the public about its intent to approve nonroad engines to power heaters for Boeing 737 Max storage in Moses Lake.
The Boeing Company submitted an air quality notice of intent to operate nonroad engines for each of its three aircraft storage facilities at the Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake. The three separate facilities used to store aircraft are:
Boeing requests the use of portable generators from about October 2020 to June 2021 to heat and dehumidify the 737 MAX airplanes stored at each of these facilities. Boeing intends to use Tier 4-certified portable diesel generators, each rated up to approximately 171 brake horsepower.
Ecology plans to approve this request. We will hold a public comment period only if a written request is received by Sept. 24, 2020.
Review proposal and SEPA checklist.
Ecology complies with Chapter 173-400-035 WAC which provides the definition, applicability, and fuel standards for nonroad engines.
