Aqualectra has no more power cables

AqualectraWILLEMSTAD – Utility company Aqualectra has sounded the alarm. The number of thefts of copper wires has recently risen so sharply that there is now a shortage. There are no more power cables.

Over the past three months there were 65 reported cases of copper wire theft. The utility company has ordered a new stock, but it has not arrived yet. This means that in the case of damage or more theft, these cables cannot be repaired or replaced immediately.

This can have serious consequences for the economic activities on the island.
