PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, April 27. /ITAR-TASS/. More than 150 thousand people were left without electric power supplies on Russian Far East’s Kamchatka peninsula over a breakdown at a local thermal power plant on Sunday.
“The automatic gas supply system was switched off in emergency at the second thermal power plant,” the press service of the Kamchatka power utility told Itar-Tass, noting that residents of the cities of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Yelizovo and Vilyuchinsk were left partially without power supply.
“Utility specialists are connecting the thermal power plant to be powered with a liquid fuel - fuel oil. Electric power supply is expected to resume soon,” the local power utility said.
