Indiana Utility Officially Closes Coal Plant FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Northwest Indiana Times:The two coal-fired generators at NIPSCO’s Bailly Generating Station will be shut down permanently Thursday night as part of the power company’s plan to reduce reliance on coal.The [604 MW] Bailly plant, on 100 acres near the Port of Indiana and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, dates to 1962. It became fully operational in 1968.Bailly will continue to house equipment to ensure transmission of continuous voltage and a gas-fired “peaking unit” used during high-demand periods. But its main role as a coal plant is coming to an end.The decision to end coal-fired generation at Bailly was part of NIPSCO’s 2016 Integrated Resource Plan, which calls for a 50-percent reduction in the utility’s coal fleet by 2023.“Bailly was the first step in that plan,” [Director of Communications Nick] Meyer said. The second step would be the planned retirement of two coal-fired units at the Schahfer Generating Station in Wheatfield, where there are four total coal-fired generators. Michigan City also has one.

Northern Ireland secured its first victory in a major competition in 34 years when it beat Ukraine 2-0 at the European Championship on Thursday.Building on a strong finish to the first half, center back Gareth McAuley headed in a free kick from Oliver Norwood in the 49th minute. Substitute Niall McGinn added a second deep in stoppage time when Ukraine was chasing an equalizer.KNOCKOUT CHANCES ALIVEFollowing its opening 1-0 defeat to Poland it now has three points, alongside Germany and Poland, who also meet Thursday. Northern Ireland’s next Group C game is against world champion Germany on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes in Paris.Northern Ireland was a far different team against Ukraine than the one that failed to even register a shot on goal against Poland. Coach Michael O’Neill made five changes to his team in response to that lackluster start to the tournament.His team’s first shot between the posts came just four minutes into the match, when new addition Stuart Dallas fired into the arms of goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov.McAULEY SCORES HISTORIC GOALNorthern Ireland grew in confidence through the first half and was rewarded with its first goal in an international competition since the 1986 World Cup when McAuley headed in a free kick from Oliver Norwood at the far post.With rain pouring down, O’Neill’s team showed the extra aggressiveness he had requested for the match at the Stade de Lyon. A short suspension in play in the 58th minute because of hail did not alter the team’s intent. And McGinn added the second from close range in the sixth minute of stoppage time.advertisementNorthern Ireland’s players wore black armbands and its fans dedicated a round of applause to pay their respects to a fellow supporter who died following the loss to Poland on Sunday. The 24-year-old Darren Rodgers died after a fall, not related to the hooligan violence that has marred the competition at times.For Ukraine, it was its second-straight 2-0 defeat and leaves it languishing in last place in Group C with no points, and more than likely reliant on others if it’s to make it out of the group stage at the European Championship for the first time.Ukraine plays Poland in its final match on Tuesday in Marseille.
