Electricity Network Failure


The power failure yesterday was not a power generation issue but a network supply failure.

The indications are that damage was caused to a cable between the Orange Bastion distribution centre and the OESCO generating station. It is possible that a contractor may have caused the damage. This will be investigated fully once power has been restored to all parts of Gibraltar.

Indeed, efforts to restore power caused overloading to other parts of the system and hence further failures. The creaking electrical infrastructure has, in any case, suffered from under-investment for many years. The new Government has started to upgrade the distribution network and will continue to do so. However, this should have happened ten years ago.

The Gibraltar Electricity Authority would like to apologise to its customers for the inconvenience that has been caused.
