NBLG STATEMENT ON STATUS OF NORTH BERGEN PROJECT 

(NORTH BERGEN, NJ) – North Bergen Liberty Generating (NBLG), a subsidiary of Diamond Generating Corporation (DGC), today issued the following statement:

“Despite published reports to the contrary, the proposed NBLG project is not on hold, and all efforts are actively being made to move forward.

The company simply informed the Department of Environmental Protection that it is adding information to and amending the current air permit application to reflect possible technology changes. Meanwhile, all other engineering, land use requirements, environmental reviews, permitting and planning have been, and continue to be, actively pursued.

Specific steps and progress include:

  • The NSR Air Permit application has been submitted and is pending amendments based on technology/modeling modifications.
  • NOx and VOC Certified Emission Reduction credits have been purchased by NBLG, associated with the Air Permit application.
  • USACE Section 404/Section 10 Approval of the project wetlands delineation has been received, and the USACE Permit Application is being prepared.
  • A NJDEP LURP Permit has been received and additional LURP permits are actively being pursued.
  • A Redevelopment Application has been submitted to the NJSEA. Pending approval, the Zoning Certificate Permit application will be submitted.
  • NJ SHPO/HPO approvals have been received.

We remain in close contact with the DEP and other authorities to clarify misunderstandings, and to make clear that our plans are proceeding at full pace.”
