Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands, March 3, 2009 - Today, several areas in downtown Providenciales experienced an unscheduled power outage due to a pole fire.

 

Between the hours of 6:00 and 8:15 this morning, a distribution feeder experienced a power outage.  Devon Cox, Operations Manager reported that "The power outage resulted from a fire which burned through the cross arm on the pole, next to the Texaco gas station near Sweet T's Chicken".  PPC's crew began restoration work immediately, replacing the transformer destroyed by the fire.  Due to the inclement weather, the power outage took longer than anticipated.

 

PPC is happy to report that the problem has been fully restored and apologizes for any inconvenience caused to customers. The company is also reviewing solutions to avoid any reoccurrences.
