Pin It

Update at 3:30 pm April 14th 2015

Power has been restored to all customers affected by today’s power outage. A cross section of the island was without power from around 10: 50 this morning when a fault was recorded in our generation facilities.

As a result of this fault, the system safely shut down as it is designed to do, resulting in a loss of power. CUC’s engineers have worked throughout the day to restore the system and bring the power back up in a safe manner.

All customers were restored at 3:24 pm

CUC sincerely apologises for this inconvenience.

UPDATE From CUC

60% of the power has been restored to customers in areas from West Bay to East End and including George Town.

At 10: 50 this morning, a fault was recorded in our generation facilities. As a result of this fault, the system safely shut down as it is designed to do, resulting in a loss of power. Since then, CUC’s engineers have been working to restore the system and bring the power back up.

We now anticipate that power to all customers should be restored by 3:00 pm.

CUC sincerely apologises for this inconvenience.
