Suva Business District Load Shedding Schedule

February 26, 2015

There is a fault on our 33,000volts underground cable that supplies power from the Vatuwaqa Substation to the Suva Substation. This fault has affected power supply to the Suva Business District & suburbs. The EFL teams have been working on this fault since 2:00am on Wednesday morning. At this stage, it is not possible to estimate repair times, however EFL is working around the clock to locate and then repair the fault at the earliest possible time.

As mentioned yesterday, EFL has no other option but to resort to load shedding to ease the demand off the remaining healthy transmission circuits to avoid major unplanned blackouts. Our load shedding program for today (Thursday, 26th February 2015) is as follows:

FEA wishes to thank all our valued customers who had assisted by operating their own stand-by generator sets independently to cater for their power requirements and request them to continue until we get the fault repaired.

Customers may experience intermittent power supply interruptions outside of the above stipulated time in the event of an unplanned event.  However, EFL will endeavor to keep the power interruptions to a minimum.

The EFL sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience caused to all our valued customers which is beyond our control.
