AALO, Sept 14: Power supply to Aalo in West Siang district will be shut down on September 15, for installation of a new vacuum circuit breaker (VCB), an official said.
The department will replace the old VCB with its complete system for 5 MVA power transformer no 1 at Yeggo Switch Yard near Aalo, informed Aalo Electrical sub-division assistant engineer on Monday.
The replacement of VCB is being done after 11 years, he said.
The official said the VCB with its complete system for 5 MVA transformer no 2 was installed last week. However, the installation process for transformer no 1 could not be done to avoid frequent power shutdown in the interest of the general public and consumers.
He said even the normal maintenance shut down day (last Saturday) was suspended, so as not to pose problems to the general public.
Meanwhile, the department has appealed to people to cooperate with it and bear the inconvenience.
