Load shedding continues through the weekend as GEBE production unit failed.

gebepowerplant12022017PHILIPSBURG:--- NV GEBE stated in a press release that two of its largest production units are out of service. One engine developed a failure on its turbo charger which resulted in the unit being pulled off line while the other is undergoing a major overall. Due to this we were faced with several challenges and had to resort to load shedding. Load shedding started on Tuesday and continued periodically throughout the week. It should be noted that load shedding may continue throughout the weekend depending on the island wide load.
