Greece: power supply returning to normal on Santorini

19 August, 10:16

    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, AUGUST 19 - The power supply to the Greek island of Santorini was returning to normal over the weekend, after several days of serious shortages following a blackout caused by a power station fire last Tuesday, with the country's electricity distribution network operator (DEDDIE) saying that a rotating schedule for supplying power to different parts of the island was no longer necessary. The improvement, as daily Kathimerini reports, came on Saturday after two mobile generators were shipped to the southern Aegean island as technicians made progress in repairing the damaged power station at Monolithos, some 9 kilometers southeast of the resort of Fira. Nevertheless, DEDDIE issued a statement asking islanders to avoid the unnecessary use of power until electricity distribution is fully back to normal.

    According recent indications, Santorini was on track to break a record of 1.9 million foreign visitors attracted in 2011.
