Government takes ownership for Gibraltar power outages

A SERIES of power outages on the Rock forced the Government to claim the issue was one of stability in the network – not of generating capacity. The Government said Gibraltar now has over-capacity thanks to new generators.

The Government explained that the problems arose as a result of the fire at Waterport Power Station, which damaged equipment central to ensuring stability across the grid. Without that equipment, any surge in demand can make the network trip.

According to the Government, the long-term solution to ensuring a stable supply of electricity is the new power station and the replacement Gibraltar’s aging infrastructure.
