Power Dip Reported Across Trinidad and Tobago

The Trinidad and To­ba­go Elec­tric­i­ty Com­mis­sion (T&TEC) has con­firmed a coun­try-wide pow­er dip short­ly af­ter 6:39 PM Thurs­day. 

Pow­er dips were re­port­ed across many ar­eas in Trinidad‘s south­ern, cen­tral, and north­ern ar­eas. Un­like the pre­vi­ous is­land-wide out­ages and dips, T&TEC cus­tomers in To­ba­go al­so re­port­ed a drop in elec­tric­i­ty and an out­age in Crown Point

Ac­cord­ing to T&TEC’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ag­er Annabelle Bras­nell, “At 6:45 PM, we ex­pe­ri­enced a dis­tur­bance at our 66-kilo­volt sub­sta­tion at Bam­boo. This is a trans­mis­sion sub­sta­tion and, there­fore, had a knock-on ef­fect at our dis­tri­b­u­tion sub­sta­tions which dis­trib­ute elec­tric­i­ty at 12 kilo­volts.” 

Ac­cord­ing to T&TEC, To­ba­go’s elec­tric­i­ty sup­ply used to run, with the line still con­nect­ed, from the Bam­boo sub­sta­tion through a 132-kilo­volt line from Pow­er­gen to Bam­boo through to To­co and then through to To­ba­go. This con­nec­tion led to pow­er dips re­port­ed across parts of Crown Point and oth­er ar­eas of To­ba­go. 

She added that sub­sta­tions in En­deav­our, Char­lieville, and Trinci­ty had been tak­en of­fline, caus­ing pow­er out­ages in Char­lieville, En­deav­our, Ma­coya to Pi­ar­co, and Las Lo­mas to Ca­roni. Out­ages were al­so re­port­ed across parts of south­ern and cen­tral Trinidad

Bras­nell says as of 7:32 PM, all cus­tomers have had their elec­tric­i­ty sup­ply re­turned. 

Un­for­tu­nate­ly we ex­pe­ri­enced some prob­lems with the restora­tion in the Ch­agua­nas area and those cus­tomers went  lost sup­ply again. Ef­forts are in progress to re­solve that is­sue.
