Work plans

THE Fiji Electricity Authority has advised its customers in the Central Division of possible power supply disruptions as it carries out replacement work at the 132kV/33kV Power Transformers at the Cunningham Rd Zone Substation in Suva as part of the Monasavu Hydro Electric Power Scheme Half Life Refurbishment works this weekend.

A statement from FEA yesterday said it would carry out replacement of 132,000V isolators and Earth switches as well as repair and maintenance work on the 132kV/33kV power transformers at the Cunningham Rd Zone Substation in Suva.

The work started 10pm yesterday and continue to 7am on Saturday, October 28, 2017, and from 3am to 6pm on Sunday, October 29, 2017.

The authority said as a consequence of this work the 132,000 volts transmission line from the Wailoa Hydro Electric Power Station to Cunningham Rd Zone Substation will be switched off, which means that during this period FEA will rely solely on its diesel power stations at Korovou, Kinoya, Rokobili and Deuba to supply electricity to its Central Division customers from Matanipusi (Serua) to Balekinaga, Tailevu, including areas of Deuba, Navua, Suva, Nausori and Korovou.

It said the available diesel generation capacity in the Central Division was insufficient to meet the power demand of all its customers in the Central Division and has sought the assistance of major customers to assist by operating their standby generation sets during the outage period to meet the shortfall in generation capacity.
