PNG Power On Emergency Restoration By Aileen Baretta

PNG Power On Emergency Restoration 12 Mar 2015

PNG Power Limited electricians in the East New Britain Province have a daunting task to restore electricity supply to the Gazelle Peninsula after torrential rain and gusty winds destroyed most power lines and felled poles this week.


PPL Transmission and Distribution Manager in Kokopo, PeniDiave said his men were trying to fix the lines damaged on Monday but bad weather is hampering any efforts to restore power.


Mr. Diave said the sixty-six and twenty-two kilowatts lines will be fixed before all low voltage service lines damaged can be restored.



PPL Kokopo has issued a statement this week on the power outage and its efforts to restore power to the consumers.
