Three Ontario Nanticoke coal units back in service

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Three of Ontario Power Generation’s 490-megawatt units at the Nanticoke coal-fired power station in Ontario returned to service by early Tuesday, the Independent Electricity System Operator said in a report.

Nanticoke 7 returned after a two-month outage while Units 5 and 6 returned after short periods.

Two other Nanticoke units, also rated at 490 MW, are currently shut for maintenance.

Unit 3 shut Monday and is expected to return to service in by mid-April and Unit 8 is shut for a longer-term period.

Nanticoke is located on the north shore of Lake Erie, about 80 miles southwest of Toronto.
