Load Shedding Exercise June 4, 2019
June 4, 2019
Submarine Cable Temporarily De-energized
A load shedding exercise is being temporarily instituted today, from 8:00 hrs to 16:00hrs and will affect the following customers.
Auchlyne to # 53
Bygeval to Seafield
EAST COAST DEMERARA
Haslington to Nooten Zuil
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.
