Abstract : The Oswego Steam Station of the Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation occupies a site containing approximately 91 acres in the City of Oswego, New York, on the shore of Lake Ontario. This site now contains four fossil fuel steam electric generating units with a total nameplate rating of 320 megawatts (Mw) and a maximum output of 407 Mw. These units were constructed during the period from 1938 to 1956, and were designed for coal firing. Beginning in June 1972, these existing units will be fired with oil. The existing units utilize once-through cooling systems discharging to Oswego Harbor. Each utilizes its own smokestack discharging 365 ft above ground level. The proposed Unit 5 will consist of an oil-fired steam electric generating unit, with a nameplate ratring of 816 Mw and a maximum output of 890 Mw. The frontispiece of this report illustrates the southwest view of the expanded Oswego Steam Station. Detailed design and engineering work will be undertaken during the remaining three years for completion of the project.
