An unforeseen cut affected the interconnected northern electricity system and left 10 provinces without electricity mid-morning today, but the situation has already been restored in Luanda, Angola's capital, an official source told Lusa.


According to Neusa Cumbe, the director of the institutional communication and information office of the Ministry of Energy and Waters of Angola, the cut occurred around 11:15am and affected the provinces of Luanda, Bengo, Uige, Kwanza Norte, Kwanza Sul, Benguela, Huambo, Bié, Malanje and Zaire.

Neusa Cumbe said that the National Electricity Distribution Company (ENDE) is already progressively replacing electricity in Luanda.

For the other regions, the same source said, after Luanda work is underway to restore the situation in the provinces of Uige and Benguela.

The director of the communication office stressed that the cause of the cut-off has not yet been identified, but situations of this kind have been increasingly rare.

"Our system is not yet completely reliable, there may have been a storm that dragged the groups," said Neusa Cumbe, explaining that the Laúca group is a modern system and "when there are problems it accuses, turning itself off.

She added that the same group "when it shuts down drags all the production plants, lines and transport systems, to protect the equipment.
