Blackout in parts of northern Phuket tomorrow

PHUKET: Thalang District Electricity Authority (TDEA) has announced a major blackout scheduled to affect residents in Thalang tomorrow from 9am to 5pm.

The scheduled blackout will affect areas along the southbound lane of Thepkrasattri Road, from the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives Thalang branch to the LPG gas station in Baan Li Porn.

Thalang Hospital will be affected, but will run on its own generators during the blackout period, confirmed TDEA staffer Attanai Trairat today.

“Tesco Lotus will be in the blackout area too, but they will not have a problem because they also have their own generators,” Mr Attanai said.

“Some power cables are old and damaged. We want to make sure that all the cables are in good condition to prevent short circuiting and fluctuations in power supply.”
