Mains power feeding the site failed on Friday 19th October 2007. Where after the Sentech emergency power generator carried the load until 11h40 on Saturday 20th October, when the generator experienced a fault, resulting in the loss of service.

While mobilizing a temporary generator, the mains power was restored to the site and all the services were fully functional at about 15h18.

While repairs are underway on the standby generator, a temporary emergency power generator has been installed on site.

Sentech wishes to apologise for any inconvenience caused during the transmission failure.
