Power cuts throughout Cyprus due to power plant failures

Several areas of the island faced sudden power cut today starting at 11.28am after a fault in one of the generators at Vasiliko power plant which was then followed by another generator shutting down at Dhekelia power plant. Electricity Authority’s Engineers are working to fix the problems and electricity supply has already been restored in many of the affected areas.  The police requests that drivers should be extra careful because traffic lights in many areas are out of service.
