Metro embarks on emergency repairs to GBK1 substation

JUNE 23, 2015

The Nelson Mandela Bay announced on Tuesday afternoon that residents of Govan Mbeki Township, Veeplaas and Soweto-on-Sea currently have no electricity supply - and it is not load shedding.

"Emergency repairs to GBK1 #1 has necessitated the switching off of these areas," the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said.

The municipality said that its technicians were hoping to restore power as soon as is possible.

In the past weeks, similar power outages have occurred in the Metro due wet and cold weather as well as aging infrastructure.
