NAWEC informs the general public that the current electricity situation in the GBA is a result of some ongoing maintenance works in both Brikama and Kotu Power stations. Generator Number 5 at Kotu Power Station is shut down in an emergency and is being assessed for the required repairs.
This capacity gap is making it extremely difficult for NAWEC to distribute normal supply to all customers at the same time thus stretching the load shedding roster and affecting normal water supply in some areas.
NAWEC assures its esteemed customers that extra efforts will be made to keep the rest of the generators available during the period in order to minimize the load shedding.
NAWEC apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and promises to restore normal supply as soon as works on the engines are completed.
