GenOn Energy Services, LLC filed a Workers Adjustment and Retraining notification with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. The notice indicates the company will close its Mobile Maintenance Division in early 2018.
GenOn, a wholly owned subsidiary of NRG Energy Inc., filed bankruptcy in June 2017. According to a securities filing, the company reached an agreement in May to slash $1.75 billion of its debt and restructure the power generator as a standalone business. The ownership of GenOn was transferred to senior noteholders.
GenOn’s Mobile Maintenance Division has 107 employees who are expected to separate on February 1, 2018.
Update: GenOn will not be closing its power plant at Florence, only its Mobile Maintenance Division, according to David Gaier with NGR.
