TRNC Prime Minister Ünal Üstel has announced that the government has taken a decision to launch an international tender for the procurement of fuel oil for the Teknecik Power Plant.

He added that they had also taken the necessary measures to ensure that no problems are experienced until the tender is completed and the purchase is completed.

Üstel said that the main responsible party for the power cuts was the Sideral Maritime company which failed to meet its obligations.

The TRNC experienced widespread power outages on Monday after it emerged that the Teknecik Power Plant experienced a fuel shortage and other technical problems.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Prime Minister Ünal Üstel said that the public was justified in being outraged by the power cuts which was why it was important for the government to be transparent in explaining the causes of the widespread outages being experienced over the past two days.

He gave the reassurance that shorter power cuts will be experienced today and that life should be expected to return to normal as of today.

Üstel said that the Sideral Maritime Company responsible for supplying KIB-TEK with fuel for the Teknecik Power Plant was responsible for the outages.

He added that the company had caused the Cyprus Turkish Electricity Authority financial and emotional damage.

“We shall be launching legal action against the company and we as the government are determined to seek compensation for our losses,” the prime minister said.

Üstel pointed out that the government had decided to launch an international tender to solve the issue swiftly and that all steps have been taken to provide consumers with uninterrupted supply until the first shipment of fuel will be delivered by the company awarded the fuel procurement tender.
