Power supply in Fiji's Central Division has been fully restored as the Fiji Electricity Authority has gone back to hydro-power after repair works at the Wailoa Power Station today.

FEA chief executive officer, Hasmukh Patel, said "it was back to business" for the central division as there will be no more rotation of power supply after FEA engineers successfully repaired the 132,000 volt transmissions in the hilly terrains in the interior of Viti Levu.

"It has been a very tough week for us as the works have been hampered by not only bad weather but inaccessibility and a lot of other issues but I am happy to say that our engineers have worked tirelessly to complete the restoration work before the deadline," he said.

The FEA had promised to have hydro power back by Tuesday and engineers, who faced very risky situation in the tough terrains and adverse weather conditions, have erected a 25 meter tower of tubular pole that was brought for circumstances such as the present one.

Patel assured that there will be 100 percent restoration in the Western Division by Tuesday.
