MPs denounce Kuwait authorities after blackouts
Power cuts prompt lawmakers to pressure MEW for rental power
Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity and Water is under pressure to ensure the traditional summer power outages don’t continue, as the country’s lawmakers insist that authorities cover generation gaps with rental power.
Temporary power generation units have been suggested in Block Three, Al-Qasr, just one of the areas to suffer a series of power cuts recently. According to a report by the Arab Time, MPs Adnan Al-Mutawwa and Askaer Al-Enezi denounced the ministry for its failure to offer ample power supply as the summer’s high temperatures hit.
Ministry sources have blamed some power cuts on equipment failure, saying that while efforts were being made to repair damaged infrastructure, it would be 2013 by the time secondary transmission plants come online and make power cuts a ‘thing of the past’.
