Senior official tells TAS: 60% electricity restored in Oman after major power cut

MUSCAT: Over 60 per cent of the electricity has been restored following a major outage in the country on Monday.

Speaking exclusively to The Arabian Stories, a senior official at Nama Group said: “We have managed to restore 60% of electricity and work is underway to restore full service,” he said.

Nama Group clarified that the reason for the interruption was a technical malfunction in one of the transmission lines of the network.

Airport operations were partially affected, traffic signals failed causing huge traffic hurdles in Muscat, while many shops were forced to close due to the power outage. Internet and mobile phone services were also disrupted in many places forcing people to leave home early from work.
