Power outages disrupt Gabon’s energy, water supply

APA - Libreville (APA)

The current disruptions to electricity supply in and around the Gabonese capital, Libreville, have caused a 10 percent loss of the “current production capacity” of the Gabon Energy and Water Company (SEEG), the company announced Thursday in a statement.

“These disruptions follow the unavailability of some means of production,” the statement added.

However, a rotating power outage programme is implemented between 7pm (6pm GMT) and 11pm (10pm GMT), the Company said, ensuring that “our technical teams are mobilized to minimise the inconvenience caused, which duration should not exceed 30 minutes.”

The SEEG is working to implement a sustainable solution, the release concluded.

In 2018, the Gabonese government terminated its agreement with Veolia, the majority shareholder of SEEG, because of numerous complaints, particularly about the poor quality of service in the distribution of water and electricity.
