NamPower cautions public on power outages

NamPower has cautioned residents of Ariamsvlei, Noordoewer and surrounding areas to be careful around power lines during electricity outages.

This comes after the towns and surrounding areas have been experiencing power outages since Sunday.

According to NamPower spokesperson Pieter Cloete, the situation is due to an electrical fault on a transformer at Harib substation.

“The prevailing NamPower technical personnel are currently engaged in transporting a replacement transformer from Windhoek. It is anticipated that supply to the affected areas will be restored by Wednesday, 21 February 2024,” Cloete said.

He added that the public should treat all power lines and electrical points as live during power outages as no prior notification is given when power supply is restored.

“NamPower apologises to the residents of Ariamsvlei, Noordoewer and surrounding areas and the public at large, for any inconvenience that the outages may cause,” said Cloete.
