Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc. expects the 428-MW Unit 1 at its Craig coal-fired power station in Colorado to return to service in mid-December, according to a report from Reuters. The unit shut on Sept. 7 because of significant water damage.
The company stated last week it moved a planned outage scheduled for spring 2014 forward to take advantage of downtime while workers fix the turbine. According to the report, workers from General Electric Co. are rebuilding the high pressure/intermediate pressure steam path components and rewinding the generator.
Unit 1 of the station is owned by Tri-State and four other regional utilities, according to Reuters.
