Energy Fiji Limited customers in Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki are advised that there will be a power shutdown this Sunday.
Critical repair works will be carried out on the EFL 33,000Volt transmission line that carries power from the EFL’s Vuda Zone Substation to their customers in Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki.
The Chief Executive Officer, Hasmukh Patel says in addition, the overhead 11,000Volt power lines crossing the Ba River along the FSC tram line crossing and along the old bridge sustained damages on 1st April 2018 during the flooding associated with TC Josie.
These lines need to be reinstated urgently to ensure security of supply in the Yalalevu and Balevuto area is restored urgently to pre-TC Josie levels.
The works will be carried out from 4am to 6pm on Sunday 20th May, 2018.
