STRONG wind toppled three electric towers carrying the Belin-Thabyaywa 230 KV transmission line of the country’s national power grid on 1 May, according to the Ministry of Electric Power.
Due to the strong wind, cross arms and earth wires of the towers and the earth wire clamps of Yeywa-Thabyaywa 230 KV No (1) transmission line were damaged.
Despite the damage, power outages were avoided as delivery of electricity was reverted through other transmission lines, said the ministry.
The ministry added that efforts are being made to resume power supply through the damaged towers as soon as possible with a force of about 100 service personnel from the ministry.—Myanmar News Agency
