We are accepting comments on the approval order modification for Microsoft MWH in Quincy.
Para asistencia en español: email@example.com
Microsoft MWH Data Center (MWH), located at 1515 Port Industrial Parkway in Quincy, currently has an air quality permit, Approval Order 19AQ-E031, to install and operate 117 diesel powered emergency generators, 32 cooling towers, and 136 evaporative coolers. MWH requested a reduction of permitted equipment to 105 engines, 32 cooling towers, and 100 evaporative coolers. MWH also requested to move some of the engines to different locations on site. These modifications were modeled and are included in the Notice of Construction application. All generators will be Tier 2-certified and will be equipped with a catalyzed diesel particulate filter and urea-based selective catalytic reduction to meet emission requirements of U.S. EPA Tier 4 engines. This project will be an overall reduction of emissions from what was previously permitted.
