Trinidad Generation Unlimited (TGU) wishes to inform all its stakeholders that it experienced a total loss of facility power generation at 12:52 pm on its plant yesterday, Wednesday 16th February 2022 due to a fault on the T&TEC 220KV Gandhi Village substation.  This caused all generating machines at TGU to trip leading to a loss of its power supply to T&TEC.  TGU was subsequently informed that all other Independent Power Producers (IPPs) also lost total facility generation.

The Company immediately initiated its process in consultation with T&TEC to restart its generators to allow for a gradual restoration of power supply to the National Grid.  

TGU continues to be committed to providing a reliable supply of power to the Nation and will always work with all our stakeholders to achieve this goal.
