Willemstad- There is an island-wide blackout again since early this morning on Curaçao.

When the unit was put back in production this morning, the system ’tripped’, causing the blackout according to information provided by Aqualectra CEO Darick Jonis.

According to Jonis, the situation in the meantime is under control and the Aqualectra team was still busy shortly before noon, to resume the distribution of power to the various neighborhoods. According to information the Company’s Facebook Page, it would take between 4 and 6 hours for power to be completely restored.

The blackout comes on top of recent blackouts in November 2019 and February 2020.
