Transformer failure at GEBE Power Plant leads to island wide outage

The island suffered a brief total blackout at 1.18 pm. The protection mechanism of one of the transformers that powers the GEBE power plant was activated as a result of an overcurrent. This resulted in an abrupt shutting down of all the production units in order to safeguard the power plant.
