Transformer trip leads to another power shutdown

At approximately 8.30hrs this morning, a transformer trip at the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Kingston power station caused the Demerara Berbice Interconnected System (DBIS) to experience a shutdown.
Restoration efforts commenced immediately and most areas were repowered at approximately 9.45 am with the exception of Sophia, La Penitence, East Ruimveldt, West Ruimveldt and a section of the East Bank, between Herstelling and Craig. These areas were re-powered at 1 pm, GPL said.
