Another total blackout for Tenerife

A power failure caused a total blackout for Tenerife last night, the second in the last fortnight, and the third for the island in a year (fourth for the province in a year if one includes La Palma’s). According to Unelco-Endesa, the incident occurred at 1.19am and power was fully restored to the whole island at 6.30am. The power failure occured in the Candelaria substantion, in a part of 66,000 volts, which caused a knock-on disconnection at the Las Caletillas power station. This then caused a disconnection in the Granadilla “central”, and thus a blackout for the whole of Tenerife. Endesa is investigating the causes of this new breakdown and apologized for any inconvenience caused. C24H
