SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – “We hereby inform you that our distribution network suffered a major interruption yesterday, April 9, 2019,” NV GEBE said in a statement on Wednesday.
“The interruption, after a brief investigation, was determined to have resulted from a technical challenge in the transmission cables.
“The overview of the job and the estimated repair time called for the immediate redirection of cables. The Production Plant was alerted, and cables were rerouted on the instructions of the technicians charged with the responsibility of resolving the problem.
“The lead technicians Vincent Ellis, Albert Fleming, Sheffield Busby, Marlon Rombley, Sergio Milton and Andre Milton, along with Assistant Distribution Manager, Ramiro Hernandez worked until late last night to ensure that problem was rectified, and that electricity was restored to all neighborhoods. The last cable was switched in at 21:52 pm.
