BRIEF: Prairie State taps new COO

St. Louis Post-Dispatch (MO) |

June 25--Prairie State Generating Company has appointed Randy Short as the Illinois coal plant's chief operating officer.

Short has two decades of experience in the utility industry, most recently working as plant manager at Dynegy's Baldwin Energy Complex, also an Illinois coal-fired power plant.

The 1.6 gigawatt coal plant and adjacent mine also said it had established a new safety department. That comes a month after an unexpected steam release damaged the plant's siding and water storage tank, taking one of the units offline during repairs.



The unit was put back online Friday, the company said.

The company is continuing to search for a permanent CEO following the May departure of Peter DeQuattro. The company's chairman, Duncan Kincheloe, took over on an interim basis. Kincheloe also heads the Missouri Public Utility Alliance.
