Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) has issued a statement concerning the nationwide power outage which occurred on Wednesday 16th February 2022.

The following is the full text of the TGU’s statement…

Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) wishes to inform all its stakeholders that it experienced a total loss of facility power generation at 12:52 pm on its plant yesterday, Wednesday 16th February 2022, due to a fault on the T&TEC 220KV Gandhi Village substation.  This caused all generating machines at TGU to trip leading to a loss of its power supply to T&TEC.  TGU was subsequently informed that all other Independent Power Producers (IPPs) also lost total facility generation.

The Company immediately initiated its process in consultation with T&TEC to restart its generators to allow for a gradual restoration of power supply to the National Grid. 

TGU continues to be committed to providing a reliable supply of power to the Nation and will always work with all our stakeholders to achieve this goal.
