Cyprus Transmission System Operator (TSO) says energy situation is improving
2011-07-22 10:40:40

The situation regarding the production of energy appears to be improving according to Director of the Cyprus Transmission System Operator (TSO) Christos Christodoulides.

Mr. Christodoulides stated that the unit which had become inoperable at Moni power plant station on Wednesday, was reconnected and more electricity was being supplied from the Turkish occupied areas, leading to the assumption that there may not be more than one power cut per day in the near future.

Mr.Christodoulides added that the electricity power supplied from the occupied areas stood at 100-100 Mw this morning and dropped to 70 Mw later in the day, due to an increasing demand in power in the occupied areas.

Regarding scheduled power cuts, Mr. Christodoulides mentioned that it was difficult to draft or implement a fixed schedule due to many unforeseen circumstances, noting that everything depends on "the availability of production and the demand from the public. There is no reserve. When you have no reserve and you are walking on a tightrope, you do not have the capability to draft a fixed schedule."
