Technical issues with one of Caribbean Utilities Company’s larger generators led to power outages across various districts in Grand Cayman this afternoon.
According to a CUC spokesperson, 16,054 customers were affected by the outage, which occurred between 1:37pm and 2:15pm.
“This interruption to service was caused by a loss of generation as one of the Company’s larger generating units experienced technical issues, which triggered a shutdown of other generating units,” CUC said in a statement.
Outages were reported in West Bay, George Town and Bodden Town.
The power company said in its statement that it “apologises for the inconvenience this outage caused”.
