Delhi Transco launches system to restore power supply
The Delhi Transco has launched an emergency restoration system (ERS) to ensure uninterrupted power supply if transmission lines are damaged due to heavy storm or rain. This system will ensure quick restoration if a high voltage transmission line is damaged. This is first time in Delhi that this system has been used. With the introduction of this system, Delhi Transco will, in an unforeseen emergency, be able to restore power in the shortest possible time said Shakti Sinha CMD, Delhi Transco.
On the other hand, power cuts continued, particularly in west and south Delhi. Outages were reported from CR Park, Greater Kailash, Kalkaji, Okhla, Sukhdev Vihar in south and Nangloi, Chand Vihar, Rajouri Garden, Tilak Nagar and Uttam Nagar. In Nangloi residents complained of 12-hour long power cut due to a local snag.
