CUC outage Wednesday evening

| 14/08/2008

(CNS): A mechanical fault caused a two-hour blackout in West Bay, East End and parts of North Side and George Town yesterday evening, 13 August. Caribbean Utilities Company Ltd (CUC) said staff managed to restore power at 8:32 pm. The cause of the outage, which started at about 6:30 pm, was traced to a mechanical fault in one of its North Sound engine rooms.

The system detected the fault and components of the system were automatically shut down, safely disengaging feeders to various service areas and notifying operating staff that the problem existed. CUC expressed its appreciation for the patience of its customers during the service interruption and apologized for any inconvenience caused by the outage.
