After an enormously successful equipment auction conducted last March, MRI Auctions, a leading industrial machinery and commercial auction firm, and their joint venture partner, Sterling Machinery Exchange, will hold another two-day online equipment auction for San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, which is closing its doors for good. Auctions of this nature are standard practice for decommissioning power plants, and help to relocate valuable equipment to other sites.

The latest, 2-Day Live Webcast Auction of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station will take place on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 & Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 9:00am (PDT) but MRI Auctions plans to make all of the items for sale available to the public to preview on June 9th & 10th, from 8:00am to 4:00pm (PDT).

Businesses have the opportunity to bid on a seismic shaker table, 4700 kw generators, new motors, pumps, valves, motor control centers, circuit breakers, storage cabinets, welders, lumber & other lots.

The training aids and mock-up units available for bid are ideal for nuclear industry companies who perform services on steam generators, refueling machines, and reactor coolant pumps. Mock-ups are valuable because they help reduce radiation exposure for plant personnel.

This auction isn’t just for utilities, though. Thousands of items fit industrial building, electrical and shop maintenance applications. And since none of the items up for auction were associated with radiological plant operations, they are safe for use outside of the nuclear facility.

To accommodate both local and remote buyers, the auction preview will be held on location at Southern California Edison’s 14300 Mesa Road, San Clemente, CA address, as well as online via a live webcast hosted by

Roy Gamityan of MRI Auctions, and head auctioneer, encourages interested parties to register online at least 48 hours ahead of the sale. “We invite buyers to inspect the impeccably maintained equipment and machinery available through this auction. If you can’t make it to San Clemente, go online to view photos and videos of the massive inventory and secure your seat at the buying table. We offer complete auction information at”

There will be machinery and equipment removal resources available to all winning bidders at the time of the auction, but bring your wallet if you intend to bid. To secure a bidder’s paddle, a $500 cash deposit is required and all online bidders must wire transfer a $1,000 deposit or 25% of their anticipated spending ahead of the auction start.

Potential bidders should also be aware of the high security and safety standards of this facility. There will be special on-site terms and conditions for the sale entrance which you can find at the MRI Auctions website, along with complete bidding registration instructions and payment terms for winning bids.
