We are pleased to sustain power services to the island without major interruptions after engines problems experienced during the first week of April. The engine problems were fixed which had restored power services to the island.  The Power Plant Operators have been closely monitoring and doing their regular routine schedules to check the units to make sure they are in good running condition.

The installation of public street lights and customers Yard lights have continued during the 3rd. qrt. 2018. The customers listing for yard lights were visited and assessed and installation continued for those customers that already prepared the poles and site for the lights. A total of 200 street lights were installed to the four municipalities and 31 yardlights installed already to customers.

The tree trimming and cutting activities on the primary lines were initiated and undertaken with collaboration efforts by DT&I, KUA, FSM Telecom and the Mayors from the four municipalities. These are the main stakeholders that agreed to start clearing the main road for safety and to assist with the clearing needs of the existing infrastructure. These activities had started from Tafunsak and will continue to Utwe Municipality and work schedules are Tuesday and Thursday of each week if no urgent issues that may disrupt the set schedules.
