Eraring Unit 2 commences return-to-service startup, but ….

In this morning’s first article (which was about Callide C), I’d noted the expectation of return-to-service sometime today for Eraring Unit 2 whilst utilising the ‘Generator Outages’ widget in ez2view .

Well, one of the other widgets in ez2view this afternoon (the ‘Notifications’ widget) has triggered us this alert on seeing the ER02 unit switch back on in the FinalMW for 15:20:


Here’s a snapshot of the ‘Bids & Offers’ widget in ez2view filtered to look back 20 days, so highlighting both:

1)  The outage beginning late on Wednesday 1st May 2024 (due to a boiler tube leak); and

2)  The start of a return-to-service profile ~15 days later, on Thursday 15th May 2024:


Let’s hope it goes smoothly.

The return to service hit a snag overnight, as noted in Friday’s first article ‘… but ER02 return to service hit a snag (Thu 16th May 2024) – now possibly out until Tue 21st May 2024’.
