PHILIPSBURG:— As of 5pm on Friday afternoon residents on Dutch St. Maarten have been experiencing power outages at various locations. However, about an hour ago all generators at the Cape Bay power plant shut down causing a total blackout.
Chief Financial Officer Iris Arrindell said in an invited comment that GEBE mechanics are working on getting engine 19 back online in order for the St. Maarten Medical Center to have power since they are in need of urgent electricity. Arrindell said after that the company will put the other generators online, one by one in order to secure them. She said the cause of the total power outage will be released later.
