Sierra Leone purchases Equipment to reduce Power Blackouts in the Country



The National Power Authority in Sierra Leone said this week that it had purchased a special vehicle equipped with machines to detect faulty electric cables. It said the equipment is able to detect faulty cables within a few hours. Earlier it would take long to detect faulty cables and this meant that affected areas would experience a power blackout for days and even weeks. A senior Authority official said the vehicle was made in Germany and cost the power company 230,000 US dollars. Similar vehicles are used in all the developed countries of western Europe and North America. It is common in many African countries for areas to experience power blackouts for weeks and even months because of simple faults on electric cables.
