Review of the Extended Outage of PacifiCorp’s Hunter Unit No. 1 Power Plant


Synapse investigated the causes of the November 24, 2000 fire and generator failure at PacifiCorp’s Hunter Unit 1 coal-fired power plant.  This analysis was presented in testimony in a Utah Public Service Commission proceeding, investigating whether PacifiCorp should be allowed to pass through replacement power costs from the outage to its Utah ratepayers.  Project completed in June 2002.
