Normal power restored to Mabaruma – DPI

Mabaruma in the north west is now receiving up to nine hours of electricity after engineers fixed minor issues that were affecting the standby generator powering the town, the Department of Public Information (DPI) said yesterday.

Electrical Engineer of Region One, Frederick Kirk said that a representative from Doosan, the company that manufactures the generator, recently visited Mabaruma and dealt with the issues.

Kirk said, according to DPI, that “we had a few minor technical difficulties but the rep is in here from Doosan and he rectified the issue, we did a few trial runs and we haven’t gotten any occurrence of the issue since,” adding that “the generator (is) presently powering the community for nine hours a day, with future plans of expansion of additional hours”.

Prior to that, Kirk noted that the community was only receiving five hours of electricity.
