Recent power cuts were a direct restult of damage in a number of High tension cables that make part of the distribution system, Enemalta said.

Throughout the early morning and yesterday the damages impacted on a number of localities, including some in the North and South of the Island, and some localities in Gozo were also effected.
Enemalta said that, while the provision of electricity is now back to normal, its technicians are working round the clock to ensure that all damages are seen to.


The company said it cannot exclude that there may be short time periods of electrical disruption in some localities as a result of these works.

It apologised for any inconvenience caused, but added that the distribution network providing for electricity in homes and businesses is sufficient to meet all demands including those of summer and the extraordinary heat wave experienced at the moment which has led to an increased demand of electricity.
