Load Shedding Exercise June 4, 2019 (Pt. 2)
June 4, 2019
A load shedding exercise is being temporarily instituted today, Tuesday June 4, 2019, between 16:00 hrs to 23:00hrs as follows:
- Canefield to Auchlyne
- A to E Fields Sophia
- East and West Ruimveldt
- East and West La Penitence
- North East La Penitence
This is due to the unavailability of the submarine cable which links our Kingston and Vreed-en-Hoop Stations which developed a suspected fault along sections located approximately 0.5 km offshore from our Kingston operations.
Additionally, two generating sets at our Kingston Power Plant are unavailable due to maintenance requirements.
Our Company remains cognizant of the inconveniences associated with this load shedding exercise and will endeavour to minimize the duration.
Additionally, we will continue to provide updates as they become available.
