… and Kogan Creek comes off for a few days on Sunday 14th January 2024

Last one today, I hope!

Here’s a snapshot of the ‘Unit Dashboard’ Widget in ez2view, focused on the KPP-1 unit (i.e. CS Energy’s Kogan Creek station), which has come offline also on Sunday 14th January 2024:


The table is focused on the 15:35 dispatch interval (NEM time) in which the unit came offline.

Quickly flipping to the ‘Generator Outages’ widget in ez2view, I was a bit surprised to see that the unit was already marked as offline (mouse over shows Forced Outage) for Monday 15th, Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th January 2024:


Contrast that with LYA1 (which tripped shortly beforehand today), where the ‘stale’ MT PASA DUID Availability data shows it as being available from tomorrow.

Delving further, we see that (in ‘Forecast Convergence’ widget in ez2view) that this outage was slated over a week ago … back on Tuesday 2nd January 2024 was when it was added to the plan:


Remember that this widget allows one to ‘look up a vertical’ to see ‘that other dimension of time’.

Nothing further to add, at this point.


PS1  back online, Tue 16th Jan 2024

A quick note, for completeness – the unit began the process of coming back online (ramped to 137MW) in the 20:15 dispatch interval on Tuesday 16th January 2024 … which was slightly earlier than initially envisaged.
