Power failure due to cable damage

At approximately 13:00 yesterday afternoon, one of Civils 2000’s mechanical excavators accidentally damaged a 11KV power cable opposite the Kalk Bay Theatre. The City of Cape Town’s Electrical Department were called in immediately, and under very adverse weather conditions, were able to restore power at about 21:00.

Civils 2000 would like to apologise to all residents and business owners in Kalk Bay for any inconvenience that was caused as a result of this unfortunate incident.

    Once is an accident. Twice is inexcusable. Unscheduled power cuts cost businesses and families lots of money in lost earnings and spoiled food.

    I work from home and do not have the luxury of a generator. When the power is off business stops for me and I have to explain why to clients.
