Automatic Protection System Triggers Island Wide Outage

At approximately 5:50pm, the automatic protection panel at the Needs Must Power Station activated resulting in an island wide outage.

Engineers and technicians carried out the necessary checks and remedial actions before the process of restoration began at 5:54pm with the restoration of electricity to all areas on the Canada feeder. By 6:49pm the supply of electricity was restored to all areas island wide.

The St. Kitts Electricity Company deeply apologizes to all consumers for the interruption in the supply of service.
