Electrica to repair its damaged power grid in the next 48 hours, 25,000 consumers still affected by power outage

Due to severe weather conditions (rain, snow and strong wind) in the south-eastern counties of Romania on April 20, 2017, Electrica had several power grid failures within its group. The most affected counties were Braila, Buzau, Galati, Vrancea, Prahova, Cluj and 25,000 consumers are still with no electricity, but the problem is to be solved in the next 48 hours, the company says.

"The most affected county in terms of broken electricity poles is Galati, with a total of 430 medium-voltage broken poles, followed by Vrancea, where we have around 130 medium-voltage broken poles," said Catalin Stancu, general manager of Electrica, in a press meeting.

In the counties of Galati and Vrancea, the intervention was made difficult due to the restricted access to the affected facilities, as well as blocked roads, according to the company.

"The cost of these repairs is not significant and it will not have an impact on the electricity distribution tariff," said Electrica's general manager. "The number of affected consumers has fallen below 23,000. It is worth mentioning that we are still working in difficult conditions, 24 hours a day, 70 teams with 400 electricians being on the field to repair all the damage."

On Friday, April 21, at 12:00, a maximum of 127,000 affected users was recorded in the three areas covered by the distribution companies within the Electrica Group, most of them in Vrancea, Galati and Braila counties.
