SEWA reassures executive council over power crisis
Utility tells Sharjah's deputy ruler adequate measures have been taken
Electricity chiefs in Sharjah have given their assurance to the emirate's deputy ruler that adequate measures have been taken to handle the current power crisis.
Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) updated the Sharjah Executive Council on the action it had taken to solve the power problems that have hit parts of the emirate over the past week.
SEWA told the council, which was chaired by Sheikh Abdullah bin Salem bin Sultan Al Qasimi, deputy ruler of Sharjah, that its actions were adequate to restore normalcy to the situation, news agency WAM reported.
"These measures have been instrumental in overcoming the crisis," SEWA said, adding that technical faults were common at this time of the year due to a steep rise in demand for electricity.
SEWA said that it would strive to "ensure easy flow of power current to consumers" in the future.
On Saturday, SEWA apologised for the series of power cuts that have hit the emirate. In a statement, the utility added that it was keen to provide better services to consumers.
