Power cuts in TRNC likely to continue

The frequent power cut currently being experienced in the TRNC is likely to continue due to lack of investment and a fall in production.

Speaking on the frequent power cut in the country, Kib-Tek manager, Gürcan Erdoğan, in a statement to Kibris Postasi TV on Wednesday said, Kib-Tek’s current production capacity had fallen to 290 MW leading to a shortfall of 70 MW. He further said that the problem of capacity was because some generators were undergoing maintenance and some were malfunctioning.

He said there was no guarantee regarding the supply of electricity from the south of Cyprus. “Sometimes it’s 50 MW and sometimes 60 MW, but there is no guarantee.” he said.

Mr Erdoğan said the programme of power cuts would be announced by region and time before adding that; “It seems that the blackouts will continue.“

Speaking on electricity cost, Erdoğan said; “The last price adjustment was made when fuel was 580 Dollars per ton. At that time, the dollar exchange rate was 13.5 TL. At this point, the fuel has exceeded 785 dollars and the dollar has exceeded 14 TL. It will be reviewed later this month. Fuel prices are currently on a downward trend. If it falls, there is no need for additional regulation”.
