K-Electric remains vigilant, claims few feeders tripped


KARACHI: The K-Electric Rapid Response team maintained strict vigilance on Thursday as the city experienced another wave of rain.

The overall power supply system remained intact on the second day of rains as well. Very few feeders were affected on the second day and were re-energised swiftly. Moreover, uninterrupted power supply to strategic installations, including the airport, major hospitals and Dhabeji was also ensured. The teams remained in the field to address localised faults and individual queries.

According to the K-Electric spokesperson, the K-Electric helpline and ground teams continued to work round the clock to address any localised faults. Investments and upgrades in power supply systems, operations and processes have aided the power utility in addressing queries with greater efficiency.

The K-Electric continues to urge the public to stay away from broken wires, poles and transformers during rainy and windy weather. The utility also urged citizens to refrain from using illegal means to abstract power.

Moreover, customers are requested to inform the power utility of any broken wires or complaints by calling on 118 or 021-99000. Queries may also be sent via SMS to 8119 or through K-Electric’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
