FirstEnergy Solutions to accelerate deactivation of Pa. coal-fired plant

Bankrupt power provider FirstEnergy Solutions Corp. has decided to accelerate the deactivation of the Bruce Mansfield coal-fired plant in Beaver County, Pa., to Nov. 7.

The company notified PJM Interconnection that it was moving the deactivation date of the remaining Mansfield unit 3 from June 1, 2021, due to lack of economic viability in current market conditions. The company previously deactivated Bruce Mansfield units 1 and 2 on Feb. 5.

FirstEnergy Solutions, or FES, expects to complete deactivation activities by May 2020. According to S&P Global Market Intelligence data, Mansfield unit 3 has a nameplate capacity of 913.7 MW and started operating in September 1980.

FES filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring on March 31. On July 23, the company submitted its sixth amended plan of reorganization, which is still being objected by several federal government agencies.
