Tavua-Rakiraki corridor to expect power outage

ENERGY Fiji Limited says critical repair works will be carried out on 33,000 volt transmission lines that carry power from its Rarawai Zone substation to customers in Tavua and Rakiraki.

CEO Hasmukh Patel said the work would be done this Sunday, June 17 from 5am to 6am.

“In order to carry out the repair and maintenance works, EFL Engineers will need to de-energise the 33,000 volt transmission line from the Rarawai 33kV Zone Substation to Tavua and Volivoli (Rakiraki),” he said.
