Short circuit causes power outage

POSTED: 06/5/13 11:32 AM

St. Maarten – At approximately 9:57 am a short circuit occurred yesterday in a high tension cable feeding the Zagersgut Substation which resulted in a major power outage across St. Maarten.
Gebe immediately began the process of restoring electricity to areas where possible while an investigative team began its process of locating the fault and rerouting of cables was carried out.
The outage appears to have been related to a “short circuit with Earth” and will be further investigated to determine the exact cause. Work to restore this fault, which was already underway, continued throughout the night.
