Azerbaijan was de-energized for several hours


July 3, Fineko/ At night from 2 to 3 July, the territory of entire Azerbaijan was de-energized because of the failure of one of the transformers of the Mingachevir hydro-electric power station, the main source of country’s electricity.

The cause of the failure of the transformer was the load and uninterrupted use of electricity by the population due to abnormal weather conditions.

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev took work on restoration at the Mingachevir station under personal control.

The electricity supply has been restored almost throughout the country, and all the relevant governmental agencies are operating on permanent standby.
