MEMBERS of the public in the Western Division have been advised of a planned power outage in Ba, Tavua, Nadarivatu, Rakiraki and parts of Lautoka from today.
Energy Fiji Limited CEO Hasmukh Patel said engineers would be carrying out maintenance work on a 33,000 Volts transmission line that supplied power from the Vuda Zone Substation to the Rarawai, Tavua and Volivoli Zone Substation, and served customers in those areas.
“This repair and maintenance work needs to be carried out to ensure that we maintain the reliability and security of power supply to the Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki areas,” Mr Patel said.
“In order to carry out the repair and maintenance, EFL engineers will de-energise the 33,000 Volts Transmission Line from the EFL Vuda Zone Substation to the EFL zone substations in Ba, Tavua and Volovoli, and parts of the 11,000 Volts distribution lines in Lautoka.
