BAHAMAS Power and Light Company Limited (BPL) said on Tuesday evening that it has suspended outage rotations in New Providence following two days of "challenges".
A statement from the company said that customers would have experienced power cuts during the past 48 hours after BPL experienced problems with several generator units at Blue Hills and Clifton Pier Power Stations.
Before the 6pm (evening peak) on Tuesday, BPL officials confirmed that all of the impacted units had returned to service.
"Company officials admit that present conditions could lend itself to further generation challenges but at present they do not anticipate any generation shortfalls resulting in the need for continued outage rotations in New Providence," the statement said.
"BPL is confident that once the additional 40 megawatts of rental power is operational, in September, reliability will significantly improve in New Providence. Additionally, with the extra rental generation operational, BPL expects to continue much needed engine overhauls to improve the output from its existing fleet.
"In the meantime, BPL asks for its customers’ patience as it seeks to implement short and long term solutions to improve its services across the country."
