Project Title & Description
STIMULUS - Nat. Clean Diesel - CT Locomotive Genset
This assistance agreement provides funding to the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. This project will repower one vintage switch locomotive in the Transportation rail fleet in New Haven, Connecticut, from a one engine configuration to a three engine/generator-set configuration. This will reduce annual emissions of nitrogen oxides by 16.6 tons, particulate matter by 0.5 tons, and volatile organic compounds by 1.7 tons. In addition, the manufacture and installation of the equipment, along with the management of the program, will create/preserve an estimated 7.5 jobs.
