Repair & Maintenance Works on the 33kV Rarawai to Tavua Transmission Line, on Sunday 17th June, 2018 .

Energy Fiji Limited (EFL) wishes to advise its valued customers in Tavua and Rakiraki districts that critical repair works will be carried out this Sunday, June 17th, 2018, weather permitting.

Repair and Maintenance Works will be on the 33,000 Volts transmission line that carries power from the EFL Rarawai Zone Substation to its customers in Tavua and then on to Rakiraki.

Chief Executive Officer, Hasmukh Patel said in order to carry out the repair and maintenance works, EFL Engineers would need to de-energise the 33,000 volts transmission line from the Rarawai 33kV Zone Substation to Tavua and Volivoli (Rakiraki) from 5am to 6pm on Sunday June 17th, 2018.

Power supply to parts of Tavua and Rakiraki will be switched off for safety reasons to allow our teams to carry out maintenance works on the 33,000 Volts line.

As a result there will be a planned power shutdown from 5am to 6pm on Sunday, June 17th, 2018 affecting EFL customers.

Maintenance works are planned to be carried out on Sunday because of the low electricity demand on this day.

Mr Patel said It would result in minimising disruption to EFL’s valued customers in the Tavua and Rakiraki districts.
