In the coming days more power outages
WILLEMSTAD - Eight power outages in one month. That is the result of a lack of spare capacity at the utility company Aqualectra. A rushed press conference was held yesterday to give the media a full explanation about the power shortage.
This deficiency is caused by an increased demand for energy than the previous two years. Also, technical issues play a role. For example, the CRU installation provides less power than is needed and there are problems with a machine at Dokweg. Because of these problems the company cannot build spare capacity
Aqualectra announced that the next few days, the machines will be repaired. This will once again lead to a power shortage and that company will have to apply their switch on and off system. Several areas on the island will experience a power outage at certain times of the day.
