Power Outage 11 Sept: Bole Hill Area

Failed Power to Relay Site at 13:10 11th September 2017

At approximately 13:20 a power failure occurred affecting parts of Treeton. Our relay site at Bole Hill is included in this outage and has been without power since this time.

What is affected?

Our site at Bole Hill has a battery backup in place that has been active from 13:10. At the time of writing we are 40 minutes into battery backup and approximately a further 30 minutes of runtime is remaining for this relay site. If the power is not restored before the battery runs out, then customers around Bole Hill, Worral Avenue and Well Lane will lose connectivity.

What is being done?

Updates on the status of the power can be found at: https://twitter.com/Northpowergrid/status/907219012349820928 

We have a spare UPS (Battery) in Treeton and will consider swapping this with the one at the relay site on Bole Hill if power is not restored swiftly.

We'll provide updates on this as we find out more.

We have let Northern Power know and they are aware of the issue: 

The Bole Hill repeater will have power for approximately 30 minutes from now. 

This issue seems to be a repeat of the power issue Northern Power had yesterday in the same area and we reported here: https://blissinternet.co.uk/news/article/power-outage-10-sept-bole-hill-area
