Power and water services have been disrupted at Hulhumale’ Phase II.

Commenting regarding the matter, State Electric Company Limited (STELCO) said that the power outage at Hiyaa towers in Hulhumale’ Phase II has been triggered by damage to the main cable amidst construction work by a party. They noted that efforts to repair the cable were currently underway.

Underscoring that the repair works may take up to hours – STELCO said that efforts were underway to restore power to Hiyaa towers using another cable, after isolating the damaged one.

“This work is expected to take up to two hours at most,” they said.  

Hiyaa towers recently saw power and water services disrupted following a loud thunder during heavy rain. STELCO solved the issue and restored power to the towers approximately within 30 minutes.
