NamPower apologises for power outage

28 June 2016 | Business

NamPower has apologised to its customers following a power outage during the lunch hour.
“NamPower wishes to inform the public that it experienced a power outage at 13:27 which affected most parts of the country,” it said in a brief statement.
Its manager for marketing and corporate communications, Tangeni Kambangula, said the cause of the outage was being investigated.
“The outage caused Aries/Kokkerboom 400 kV line to trip; this is the main line that feeds power from Eskom to Namibia. The tripping of the 400kV affected other transmission lines, as well as two generators at Ruacana and Van Eck Power Station,” Kambangula said.
Power supply to the affected areas was restored in phases, with the central areas being the first to be restored at 13:44.
“NamPower apologises to its customers and the public in general for any inconvenience that the outage may have caused,” Kambangula said.
