On September 7, 2019, during routine maintenance on our largest generating unit at the Needsmust
Power Station, engineers discovered damage to the unit that could lead to severe equipment failure.
In order to execute repairs and prevent further damage, the unit will have to be placed offline (out of
service) for up to fourteen (14) days.

Repair work has already begun and SKELEC has also sought additional assistance from regional and
international partners to fast track repairs. Additional generators have also been procured ahead of
schedule in light of the recent breakdown. The additional units are expected to be on island and
installed within two (2) weeks.

While repairs are being done and the additional units are installed, it may become necessary for us to
commence a series of planned outages to mitigate against the loss of generation capacity. The
planned outage schedule is attached below and shows the days, times, areas to be affected and the
duration of each service interruption. This schedule goes into effect from September 9th.

SKELEC apologizes for any inconveniences that may be caused by these series of outages and we
value our consumers’ patience and understanding as we seek to be proactive in this regard. Updates
on the progress of the repairs and planned outages will be given as necessary on all forms of social
and traditional media.
