BAKU, September 28 (Itar-Tass) — Electricity supply halted due to the breakdown at one of Azerbaijan’s largest hydroelectric power plants is resumed, the press service of the Azerenergy company said.
The Azerbaijani capital and other regions in the country were left without electricity for more than two hours on Friday morning because of the breakdown at the Mingechaur HPP, one of the country’s largest, which generates almost 45 percent of electricity in Azerbaijan.
The breakdown was caused by a stroke of lightning, which put some power units at the station out of operation.
The electricity supply problems disrupted the work of the Baku metro, and most citizens had to use buses instead. The ground transport was over-packed. The situation was complicated by traffic disruption as traffic lights did not work because there was no electricity.
At the same time, the electricity cut-off did not affect the operation of the mobile phone system, television and radio.
Baku's Geidar Aliyev international airport also worked as normal. Planes took off and landed at the airport according to schedule.
The city's utilities also resumed working as normal after some halts in their work.
