Unplanned Outage - August 7, 2019
Aug 07, 2019
The outage experienced today at Innisfil from 11:27 AM to 12:36 PM was due to failure of a 44KV switch at 89 & 400 HWY. The equipment failure tripped the main 44KV lines feeding several distribution stations in InnPower's service territory. The outage was caused by protections that operated successfully to prevent harm to the public and personnel. Prompt action by InnPower line crews resulted in making the site safe and quick restoration of power supply to all affected customers.
Below is a close up view of the burnt 44KV switch.
