The 130-MW Mandalay 3 gas-fired fired unit operated by an affiliate of NRG Energy (NYSE:NRG) in California returned to service Jan. 20 after an unplanned outage that lasted about a day.
That’s according to a Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Assurance Daily report on Jan. 21. The data had been provided to DOE from a California Independent System Operator (CAISO) report.
The Mandalay 3 gas unit, located in Oxnard, California, came online in 1970. NRG has filed a demolition plan for Mandalay gas units 1 and 2 with the California Energy Commission. Units 1 and 2 would be replaced with new gas-fired capacity on the same site.
