in Latest

KUALA LUMPUR – The disruption of power supply in Batu Caves last night was due to a flashover (abnormal electrical discharge) in one of the stations in Batu Caves.

Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) Corporate Affairs and Communications senior general manager Datuk Mohd Aminuddin Mohd Amin said TNB engineers were still in investigating to find the cause of the flashover.

“Electricity supply was restored via a mobile generator on standby but was shortlived due to overloading from the extensive temporary supply connections.

“The TNB team is at the scene to restore supply from two additional mobile generators,” he said in statement, Monday.

Mohd Aminuddin added traffic police is assisting to direct the generators to Batu Caves due to the heavy traffic and the big crowd.

The electricity supply was disrupted at 8.50 pm tonight and as at midnight, it has not been restored. – BERNAMA
