Briefs for April 29


The Craig Station power plant has been up and running at full power since March 7, after repairs were completed on a cooling tower that partially collapsed while workers were performing maintenance on it in January.

"All cells are back in operation, and they are back up to a full load at the plant," said Jim VanSomeren Tri-State Generation and Transmission spokesman.

Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association operates the 1,200-mega-watt power plant south of Craig. During maintenance operations in January, a worker was injured when part of a cooling tower for Unit 1 collapsed while being worked on by a contractor.

The worker was treated and released from The Memorial Hospital. No customers lost power as a result of the accident.
