These works will be conducted from Saturday night to Sunday
FEA acting CEO Eparama Tawake said in order to carry out the
repairs, engineers would need to de-energise the 132,000 volts transmission
line from the Nadarivatu to Wailoa and Nadarivatu to Vuda Power Station.
“This will mean that FEA will not be able to tansmit
electricity from the Nadarivatu and Wailoa Power Stations to the Western
Division,” Mr Tawake said in a statement issued this evening.
“During this time, we will rely on our diesel power
stations at Sigatoka, Qeleloa, Nadi, Vuda and Rakiraki to supply electricity to
our Western Division customers from Namatakula to Waimecia in Rakirai.”
