Unplanned Power Outage Affects Power Supply – Vehicle Accident Causes Unplanned  Power Outage in Naboro Area

There was an unplanned power outage at 1:50pm this afternoon, Thursday 5 th November, 2020 due to a vehicle colliding against an EFL power pole at Veisari, Lami.

This caused an unplanned power disruption to our valued customers who are provided power supply via the Naboro Feeder around the Wailekutu to Namelimeli area.

Teams were dispatched to attend to this fault which required that the EFL power pole be urgently replaced and to safely carry out the repair works, the Wailekutu to Deuba 33,000V Sub-Transmission line will need to be de-energized. The de-energization of the power line will cause a power disruption to our customers residing between Wailekutu to Matanipusi Hill.
