Aqualectra: Insufficient power reserve
WILLEMSTAD – The utility company Aqualectra does not have sufficient power capacity. Starting today the company will probably apply the switch on and off system during peak hours. This is according to the company in a press release.
The precarious situation is caused by maintenance work on a plant with a capacity of 20 MW in Mundu Nobo. These activities will take ten days. In addition, the BOO power plant is producing less electricity.
The wind turbines will not generate enough electricity either. Aqualectra expects that especially in the early afternoon there will be high demands for electricity. The utility company asks consumers in their press release to use electricity more economically.
